Abstract:  The subject-matter of the article is the interpretation of the concept-symbol RADUGA/
RAINBOW in different cultures and contexts of the emotive prose discourses. The analysis is based on cognitive-discursive approach involving cognitive modeling, contextual discourse analysis of information domain, interpretation domain and conceptual integration (blending) of conceptual metaphorical models into a cognitive-associative scheme (CAS).
It has been proved that the concept-symbol RAINBOW is a multimodal context-determined cognitive-associated scheme, which is interpreted differently and is marked by highly individual perception in different cultures and by different authors according to their specific features of cognition, culture and national peculiarities.
The prevailing cognitive models of the concept-symbol RAINBOW comprise the close interrelations between Man, Nature, Universe being symbolically interpreted in different contexts and having individual anthropocentric specificities very much depending upon the inner world, the emotional state and philosophical credo of D.H. Lawrence, the poet, writer and individual and upon “the changing rainbow of his characters’ living relations”.

Keywords:  concept-symbol, interpretation, context, cognitive model, interpretation domain,
cognitive-associative scheme.
