The article summarizes the theoretical foundations, the process and the results of the linguocultural analysis of three semantic fields: ОРУЖИЕ in Russian, WEAPON in English and VŨ KHÍ in Vietnamese. Based on the use of the linguocultural method, the features of three semantic fields are emphasized, as well as the need to approach them in terms of verbal lexemes. As a result of the semantic analysis of “weapon” verbs, three sets of connotations correlated with three languages are obtained. They are a key factor for discovering the cultural traits of three nations, as well as for emphasizing the characteristics of Russian culture compared to other cultures.
Key words: semantic field, verbal lexeme, linguocultural analysis, connotation, polysemy.
