Tambov State University named after G.R. Derzhavin
Individual space categorization is one of the ways of world structuring by means of language. Individual space categorization is based on culturally determined knowledge and on the subjectivity of the cognitive process and its social determinancy. One forms his her identity in a particular type of individual space, at a particular time, considering a number of extralinguistic factors in the system of three coordinates (individual, spatial and temporal coordinates). This conceptual model is formed on the basis of the system of oppositions realized on different levels of language.
