Annotation

The article discusses major factors which determine the variations in the use of metaphorical models of traveling, “going the distance” in order to represent non-spatial relations (the comparative analysis) both in Russian and Chinese linguistic world-view. This factor is believed to be related to the vision of the succession of the process: in the Russian linguistic consciousness the local perspective prevails over the global, whilst in the Chinese – the global perspective on the chain sequence of action-events is of primary importance.

        Key words: world-view, patterns of movement, representation of non-spatial relations, succession of process.
