Abstract

This article is devoted to the study of the national dream ideologeme in the
Chinese and US media. The term “ideologeme” is considered as a lingvcognitive phenomenon, which is a complex socio-political concept that includes an ideological component. The authors make a brief analysis of the history of the study of ideologeme in Russian linguistics. The practical part of the study consists of two stages: first, emphasis is placed on extralinguistic factors of the national dream ideology formation
for each of the sociocultures, and second, the data obtained are refined through a content analysis of the corpora of media texts collected by the authors on the topic of national dream. The results allow us to speak of two types of national dreams revealing signifi cant differences between the formation of the image of a national dream in the minds of people. Keywords: Chinese dream, American dream, ideologeme, content analysis,
lingvocognitive analysis
