Semantic Core of the Concept “Human” in the light of Latin and Latinized Nominations

Cover Page


The author proves that from linguistic hermeneutics positions the Latin term homo sapiens is not the most precise substantial nomination for human beings. There is a great number of other Latin and Latinized linguistic “mirrors” and thus its various peculiarities are being reflected. Lexico-semantic core of the concept “Human” is heterogeneous, consists of contradictory elements (lexical-semantic groups, subgroups and isolated units).
