Предлагаемое исследование посвящено вербализации концептов-архетипов первостихий EARTH и AIR в современном английском языке и выполнено на материале авторитетных англоязычных толковых словарей. При анализе исследуемых вербализованных концептов были описаны основные определения изучаемых явлений, охарактеризована проявленность их маркированности, подтверждающей их архетипичную природу. Систематизация определений позволила выделить ключевые семантические компоненты вербализованных концептов-архетипов. (The article focuses on the verbalized archetypal concepts AIR and EARTH and the specific ways of their verbalization in the contemporary English language. The research was based on the six acknowledged explanatory dictionaries of the English language. The analysis, which involved the lexicographical sources, enabled us to shape the idea about the ways to verbalize the addressed archetypal concepts at the general cultural level. It also required the involvement of phraseological unites, containing EARTH and AIR components and/or their associates (such as UP and DOWN). The lexical and phraseological units studied revealed the presence of both positive and negative connotations in understanding the phenomena being studied. Such ambivalence, along with the stable «core», serves as a solid proof of these concepts’ archetypal nature. Moreover, a number of the phraseological unites reveal the integration of the concepts of EARTH and AIR. This was also traced at the earliest stages of these concepts’ verbalization as well as widely represented in the world mythological and religious systems. The systematization of the definitions made it possible to formulate the key semantic components of each verbalized archetypal concept. These components enable the clear structuring of the verbalized concepts and could further be subdivided into smaller components.)
