Olena Chetverikova

Abstract


As a multicultural region, the Danubian Bessarabia is rich in traditionally celebrated holidays, fests and other socially important events. On the other hand, the XXI century linguistics is interested in the issues, connected with the interaction of lingual, ethnic and psychological factors as the embodiment of cultural people’s pace. Linguo-culturological studies are focused on the linguistic signs, which are formed on the borderline of two different codes – lingual and cultural. Thus, language is understood as a national cultural treasure, which forms various linguistic phenomena, and mutual interdependence between culture and language show the degree of linguo-culturological competence of a native speaker and his culture. Our investigation aims to show the variability of traditionally celebrated holidays, study the salutation forms people greet and congratulate each other, investigate the periods of celebration and meals they usually have.
