Abstract


The article is a response to the emergence and evolution of linguistic lacunology as a research trend focused on analyzing culture-specific language units having no equivalents in other languages. The article contains the author’s votum separatum concerning the ontological status of language lacoons, criticism of their interlinguistic interpretation, doubts about the expediency of applying the concept of lacoon in comparative analysis, and arguments in favour of the view that equivalentlessness and lacunarity of language units / forms are two different phenomena.

Key words


non-existence, lack, equivalentlessness, lacoon, lacunary (virtual) unit, language scheme / norm
