Abstract: Abstract Objective: to study the processual vocabulary of Ancient Greek through identifying of peculiarities of its representation in lexico-gramatical classes of different types, analysis of principles of classification according to semantic characteristics, identifying of anthropocentric peculiarities of its forming. Methods: comparison, generalization, observation, systemic analysis, data grouping, theoretical cognition, the method of analogy, component analysis. Results: basing on new theoretical regulations of cognitive-discourse tendency of study in linguistics, applying the effective and informative method of component analysis of lexemes the processual vocabulary of Ancient Greek was studied. The central part of the work is taken by nominative vocabulary (nouns, adjectives) that along with verbs takes an active part in nomination of different types of processes in space and time aspects of their realisation. The factors of forming of lexemes of such type are analyzed. Psychobiological nature of a person is identified as a key principle. The connection between specific characteristics of the model of world typical to archaic way of thinking and their fixation in lexico-semantic system of Ancient Greek is determined. Scientific novelty: for the first time on the basis of Ancient Greek the processual vocabulary was studied. Practical significance: the main provisions and conclusions of the article can be used in scientific and teaching activities in Classical Philology, General Linguistics, typological studies of Indo-European languages.
Keywords: Keywords: processual vocabulary; noun; adjective; space relationships; temporal relationships; lexico-semantic groups.
