A functional lexematic analysis of a horror short story

María José Feu Guijarro


The purpose of this article is to apply Martín Mingorance’s Functional- Lexematic Approach into the analysis of horror-fiction. Horror-fiction is a closed semantic world in itself which displays its own structure of categorization. In this study we analyse in depth a horror-fiction short story by H.P. Lovecraft, “Polaris”, according to Martín Mingorance’s proposal. At the end of the article the complete network of the predicate conceptual schemata of the story is discussed.
