Post-pandemic Challenges: Problems in Sense Verbalization in Modern English
The article is devoted to the consideration of the category of smell and its place in modern English. The analyzed category in modern English can be expressed using various parts of speech, namely nouns, adjectives, and verbs. The relevance of this research is determined by the importance of the structural description of a certain section of the lexical system of the English language and the lack of an accurate description of nouns and adjectives in terms of their cognitive and discursive analyzes applied to specific units in a post-pandemic world. The object of this research is the cognitive features of odour-transmitting units and their functioning in a language. The purpose of this research is to describe the category of smell in English and the problems of its verbalization in post-pandemic time. The study of the semantic structure and features of the compatibility and functioning of the members of each of the synonymous subgroups in dictionaries and texts helps to determine the cognitive features of this category, as well as to establish its differential features. Groups of natural smells and smells that characterize food can also have several identical lexical units. The most definite group of adjectives can be considered those units that define smells of a general nature, which do not have an exact set of organic or inorganic components and, accordingly, cannot be attributed to several groups at the same time. As for the verbs that serve to convey the category of smell in speech, they are mostly formed from nouns expressing this category.
