Abstract

The paper deals with quantitative and qualitative peculiarities of the nouns denoting etiquette in three non-related language systems – English, Ukrainian and Hungarian. To carry
out the comparative research in question, the author introduces new approach to the study of lexical semantics which combines linguistic methods with structural – mathematical ones.
On this basis lexical semantics of the words denoting etiquette as well as their seme stock in English, Ukrainian and Hungarian languages have been highlighted and presented in the form of matrices to reveal the place, role and the functions of the nouns under study in the semantic
space of corresponding languages.
