As there are many idioms dictionaries prepared in Turkish, dictionaries about idioms in English have been prepared and studies have been carried out. The dictionary named “Oxford Dictionary of Idioms”, which includes idioms in English, is one of these studies. The universe of the study is this dictionary of idioms, and its subject is the headlines, which can be considered as the idiom under the letter "N" of the aforementioned dictionary.

In his book Orientalism, Edward Said emphasized that Orientalism was in fact a discipline that adorned the debates created by the West about the truth about the East. He emphasizes that along with the silence of the East, the East has adopted what the West has presented for the East. When defining the East, we make it a habit to choose the worst examples that the West constantly puts forward. Countries can pull their societies out of this quagmire by mastering and propagating the historical, cultural and richness of the East, the way to break the stereotypes of backwardness and ignorance that come to mind when talking about the East. When we talk about the East, the death penalty, wars should not come to mind, we need to highlight its deep-rooted history and culture. To be oriental in the West is to feel both dogma and alienation in Western society, to be able to understand heaven and hell at every moment of your life, at many points.</p> 2022-02-08T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Holistence Publications https://journals.gen.tr/index.php/homeros/article/view/1681 Ambivalent comprehension of the artistic concept of AMERICA in the text of G.D.
