Keywords:international communication, international affairs, educational management, concept, frame.
The present research is aimed at defining the peculiarities of the frame INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS within modern educational discourse and finding out the lexical means verbalizing it in modern English. The first paragraph of the paper (Theory) reveals the key notions of the research – international communication, educational discourse, educational management and international affairs. Besides, it reveals the essence of the concept as the key mental structure. The next paragraph (Discussion and Results) deals with singling out the lexical units verbalizing the frame INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS as one of the components of the concept INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION within modern educational discourse. The factual material of the research contains 483 lexical units verbalizing the frame INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS in modern English singled out from the brochures and official web-sites of 50 leading higher educational institutions (25 HEIs of Great Britain and 25 HEIs of the USA) within the 10-year period (2005-2015). We come to the conclusion that the frame INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS as one of the components of the concept INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION is actualized in modern English by a great number of linguistic means. The prospects of further research are seen in defining the cognitive and linguistic features of some other frames composing the structure of the concept INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION in the modern English language.
