This article examines modern cultural codes in English and Russian. Linguocultural research involves identifying cultural information, meaningful to Russian and English societies. The relevance of the topic of research is due to a number of factors. First, the phraseological units denoting the emotional state of a person are of interest not only in the linguistic terms, but also in linguocultural, since phraseological units with high connotative potential are custodians of cultural information. Secondly, the material studied in the article is directly related to the idea of anthropocentrism in the language.
To achieve the goal, it is necessary to solve the following tasks:
• Consider cultural codes as a way to organize cultural space;
• Study the mechanism of interpretation of phraseologism through the correlation of its components with cultural codes;
• Describe the phraseological units, verbalizing the emotional state of a person, in English and Russian.
In the study, various analysis methods were applied: comparative (contrast) method; component analysis method; description-analytical method; statistical method.
The practical significance of the work consists in the possibility of applying its results in the development of special courses on phraseology.
The scientific novelty of the study lies in the fact that the article discusses phraseological units denoting the emotional state of a person in English and Russian in somatic, biomorphic and mythological codes of culture.
The main method of the study was the selection and comparison of phraseological units. The results of this study are the definitions of somatic, biomorphic and mythological codes of cultures. The study can be applied on linguoculturology disciplines, linguistics and applied linguistics.
