A Contrastive Analysis of English-Chinese Euphemisms from Cultural Perspective

DUAN Xin-miao(School of Foreign Languages,Hubei University of Technology,Wuhan 430068,China)  
Euphemism is a common linguistic phenomenon in the use of Chinese and English.However,because Chinese and English belong to two different language families with different cultural tradition and historical background,their euphemisms not only have many common characteristics,but also present their own national features and cultural connotations.As an important means of figure of speech and social intercourse,it not only is useful for people to understand the cultural connotation deeply,but also can help people to smoothly conduct cross-culture communication through making a contrastive study of the expressions and cultural meanings of Chinese and English euphemisms from cultural perspective.
【Key Words】: Chinese and English euphemism cultural perspective cultural connotation cross-culture communication
