Abstract

The article discusses the questions raised in correlation with the reflection of the linguistic picture of the world and still causing philosophical concerns: What is the ratio? Is it “complicity” that exists between a word and its meaning? What is their “degree of independence”? Does the word help to form thoughts or meaning? Which of them prevails? Are there other significant components in forming the linguistic picture of the world? In the context of these issues, the provisions of the world’s leading lingua-philosophical streams in different periods of history regarding the complementary role of verbal sign, meaning and sense in the process of creating the linguistic picture of the world are presented. If the meaning is constant in all languages and the word is a carrier of certain information, what is the nature of invariants in the formation of the meaning of the word given for the same concept in different languages, associated with worldview of this linguistic community? Maybe this difference is connected with the reality of modelling the world.

However, the conceptualization of the world through the language, sign is universal and nationwide, while the peripheral ones are linguistic and national, still remains pendent in linguistic semantics.
