    Hello!

    My name is Olga. I teach English at school. At the moment one of my students is doing a research for a scientific conference at our school. Our subject is “Representation of the concept “beauty” in the Russian and English linguistic consciousness”. We compare linguistic representation of  BEAUTY through words and phraseology, proverbs. We’d like to support our analysis of words and collocations with this associative experiment.
    We’d like to ask you to answer some questions if  it isn’t difficult for you. It won’t take much time, but it will really help us in our research. 

    Questions.
    Sex:
    Age:
    Education: (high school, college, university)
    1. Write the first word that is associated with BEAUTY -
    2. Finish the sentence: “BEAUTY – is ……”
    3. Write 5 adjectives and 5 verbs which are associated with BEAUTY.
    4. What image  appears in your mind when you hear the word  BEAUTY.
    Thank you in advance.
