Acta Universitatis Lodziensis. Folia Linguistica Rossica, Nr 4 (2008), s. 93-105
Functioning today in the alive modern language of the paremies and them constructs remain relicts fallen asleep in time and outside of time of a national cultural and language formation. It can be defined as semantic language of folklore. Language of folklore represents harmonous metasign system of over-verbal level. In its basis lays archaic mythological representations of cultural and national society. For this system lexemes, as constructive units of the folklore text, and their semantic filling in a metalanguage context of folklore are not important.
