Abstract

The article focuses on the semantic modulation that is one of the processes of meaning transmition. The semantic modulation mechanism of the somatisms “ رأس / head” has been revealed as phraseological transforms in Arabic, English, Ukrainian and Russian. The assumption
about the preservation of the main and common categorial meaning has been confirmed in the process of the somatism “head” functioning in the figurative context. The four common areas reflecting the results of the man’s knowledge of his/her intellect, character, behaviour, emotions
through physiological and somatic subject code, the main element of which is the “head”, have been identified. Different combinations of the nature of universal semantic features (semes) of the somatism “head” consisting of phraseological transforms in the Arabic, English, Ukrainian and Russian languages have been established. They reproduce the unique nuances in the meaning due to the historical, cultural, social, geographical, climatic and other factors.
