TitleThe Comparison of the Motivation of English Idioms and their Hungarian Equivalents
AbstractBased on cognitive linguistic research exploring the conceptual motivation behind the most frequently used English human body idioms and their Hungarian equivalents, the present paper discusses the major similarities and differences of conceptualization in English and Hungarian. A category system for classifying English human body idioms and their Hungarian equivalents is proposed, in which six different types of equivalency categories are reported, ranging from the most ideal translation equivalents to the least ideal ones.
