The paper presents the results of the study of the vocabulary constituting concept ‘old' in the folk linguistic worldview based on the material of the English and Russian folk lyrics.The author makes an attempt to find ethnic peculiarities of this vocabulary taking into account the frequency of the words usage and their syntagmatic relations in the texts of the songs.The paper provides some examples of the chosen vocabulary functioning in the English and Russian folklore.The novelty of this study stems from the source material used – the paper is the first one to present a comparative research of verbalizing the concept ‘old' in English and Russian folklore texts.It is also relevant as it identifies certain specificity of the mentality of two ethnoses and figures out the ways of its reflection in the English and Russian folklore linguistic worldview.
