Mirroring Effects and the Water Code: A Cognitive-Semantic Approach to Natural Morphology in the Religious-Cultural Context

Rajdeep Singh


Word formation is an important part of the morphology and vocabulary building. However, the systematic study of the word formation has not been widely enough and there were few studies which looked at the religious words and their formation. In this study, we looked at the word formation of a limited class of words, but significant in their cultural and religious importance. The question of why some religious words across many different languages are apparently similar is responded here. In fact, we proposed the mirroring effect as a systematic way of word formation which particularly affects the words in religious framework. Our framework in the natural morphology and the results are therefore applied cross-linguistically to other languages. This study therefore shed light on the field of morphology and semantics and solves some of the problems regarding the observed similarity of words and word formation processes across languages.
