The goal of this cognitive linguistic analysis of adjective+noun compounds with black and white in the modifier position is to present the semantic and conceptual network of the meanings of black and white. The relevance of such a research is fundamental, firstly, because color is basic in perception, thus, also in conception; secondly, because black and white are basic within colors. It is generally assumed that, not only are they the main colors, black and white are equal and co-dependent complements of each other. The present analysis questions the validity of such a claim. Black and white do not always have the same functions and values. Based on the general idea of cognitive linguistics that language is a window to the mind, the study suggests that the way these color terms behave in compounds reflects the conceptual characteristics of the two colors, as individual colors and as unequal complements. In other words, the present analysis, while using linguistic material as evidence, aims to uncover the mental map that underlies our conceptualization of the culturally crucial notions of black and white.
