doctor of philology, professor Kyiv Borys Grinchenko University
The article considers verbal representations of existential phenomena from the standpoint of universalia-centered linguistics and the methodology of M-logic. Special attention is paid to the etymological analysis of the LIFE concept’s names in Indo-European languages and the reconstruction of the cognitive models, the latter being the bases of the lingual units designating the said phenomena in the archaic Germanic languages.
KEY WORDS: existential phenomenon, mythic space, semantics, sense, model.
