Summary/Abstract: The article is a review of phrasemes, adopted in Bulgarian from neighboring and non-neighboring languages. The author discusses the history and the origins of the phrases and comments on the leading influences on the Bulgarian language in different periods of its development. An attempt to analyze the loan translations is made by the comparison of texts, written in Russian and Western European languages with their translations in Bulgarian, that were published during the Revival.
