Abstract

The paper deals with the study of explicit and implicit evaluative meanings of the concept “strange” by means
of the example of some quotes from George Martin’s American novel A Dance with Dragons. The article
discusses the two fundamental concepts of the axiological world picture – value and evaluation. From the
perspective of axiological linguistics, everything that is valuable is reflected in the language appraisal, which
depends on unstable subjective and objective value judgments. The purpose of this paper is an axiological
analysis of the concept “strange” in modern English worldview, intellectual and emotional characteristics of
not only a certain linguistic personality but also of society on the whole are revealed via studying the concepts.
An axiological analysis of the concept “strange” in the literary work reveals evaluative connotations of the
main characters, which render their value-based consideration, which, bereft of their context, can be
interpreted differently. Thus, the study reveals that implicit and explicit value judgments are dependent on the
subjective interpretation of the linguistic identity
