The paper presents the analysis of the selected Russian and Polish lexems containing the Greek
root morphems био-/bio-, мега-/mega- and the prefix morphem гипер-/hiper- from the point of
view of their stylistic and frequency properties in the Russian and Polish parts of speech. The material
was drawn mainly from the National Corpus of the Polish Language (Narodowy Korpus Języka
Polskiego) and the National Corpus of the Russian Language (Национальный корпус русского
языка). This material and the data from the foreign words dictionaries as well as from the explanatory
dictionaries were searched with the regard to all functional styles except the scientific one due
to its specificity which allows no stylistic and semantic variantivity.
The high frequency of the Russian and Polish lexems containing the above morphems in the
colloquial and columnist style makes it possible to assume that the feature texts as well as promotional
ones are widely available for the vast groups of audience. Thus feature and and columnist
texts are the main channel of those lexems’ linguistic distribution.
