Concepts, constantly developing and modifying with the help of various linguistic means, cannot be fully expressed in speech, therefore the search for optimal verbal language means of expressing the concept continues. The set of concepts of a particular ethnic group makes up its conceptual sphere. Each individual concept will have its own concept sphere, which, in turn, can be one of the constituent elements of the general concept sphere of an individual and the whole nation. The categorization process, i.e. formation of categories - extremely general concepts that are not subject to further generalization, do not have a generic concept. The emergence of such a scientific direction as conceptology, and the whole after it of comparative conceptology, in our opinion, contributed to the formation of linguoculturology as a theoretical discipline. The study of the indicated broad problems entailed the creation of a metalanguage of description, the development of a terminological apparatus. Phraseological units, as a kind of set of wisdom, quite clearly describe the way of life, history, national characteristics of people. This layer of vocabulary gives a complete picture of the linguistic picture of the world of the people being studied. In general, phraseological units are highly informative units of language, one of the language universals, since there are no languages without phraseological units. It is also necessary to note the importance of the internal form and connotation in the phraseological meaning, where emotionality, expressiveness, evaluativeness, intensity and functional-stylistic characteristics are intertwined. All these reasons make the phraseological nomination much more complex than the lexical one. The results can be used both when studying intercultural processes and by culture experts, philologists, ethnologists and others groups interaction and analyzing cultural and research issues and processes of the studying languages and in the process of teaching foreign languages.
