Tolerance/Intolerance Problems in the Context of the Repressed Caucasians' Ethno-Trauma Transformation
Individual is a repository of the national worldview because language signs reflect the cultural and national mentality. Culture actually evolves and possibilities of the language expression change together with constantly developing culture. Native speakers form their outlook within the experience fixed in speech concepts that is found in mythology, folklore and belles-lettres. The relevance of the research topic is proved not only by the present crisis in the North Caucasus but also by the overall situation in the Russian Federation that demands in-depth study of relationship between the center and regions. The problems concerning adaptation and rehabilitation of the Caucasians who underwent repressions and deportations are of special interest due to the problem concerning mass migrations, the position of refugees and forced migrants including their return to the previous place of residence and also due to the transformation of repressed representative’s ethnic mind. The key concepts light and darkness, getting various shades of meaning in the literary text will organize the tragic and inconsistent space of life and death, the good and evil. Having, no opportunity to speak simply, representatives of Ingush art intellectuals tried to express all their pain and aspirations to descendants allegorically. In this space there is the image of an epic hero, involved in the stream of historical and existential time and the vector of the spiritual nation’s development is mapped out. I. Bazorkin defines use of these fundamental concepts of any linguistic and mental base of the nation as ethno-trauma that was caused by the Ingush tragic destiny in Soviet times making a reader to understand the depth of emotional stress of the researcher and his heroes as linguistic personality under the communication conditions can be considered as communicative personality that means the generalized image of a repository of cultural, language, communicative and activity values, knowledge, attitudes and behavioral responses. From an ethno-cultural linguistic viewpoint there is the opposition friend-foe here that is associated with the light-darkness dichotomy where light is the native culture and darkness is the alien culture.
