Abstract. The article examines the cognitive approach to the definition of concept ‘foregrounding’, its application to the analysis of a fragment of a fairytale-fantasy text, and describes its potential for a further detailed analysis of literary works. On the example of the analysis of a fairy-tale-fantasy text, the possibilities of using the elaborations of image-schemes and binary opposition of the trajector-landmark for revealing the meaning of the work and the personality of its characters are demonstrated.
Keywords: foregrounding; trajector; landmark; cognitive stylistics; fairy-fantasy text.
