Summary/Abstract: The paper analyzes the phraseology in Ivan Franko’s novel Crossroads (118 units) as a cultural phenomenon, through which the author reflected the mental traits of Ukrainians, and was able to convey the psychology of the protagonists, their state of mind. The descriptive method of studying linguistic facts with its methods of external and internal interpretation is used in the work. The authors argue that the centre of the phraseicon is occupied by expressions of the somatic cultural code. The most phraseologically loaded in the text are the words eye (eyes) and heart because they are part of stable combinations of words, through which the author conveyed the psychological characteristics of the communicators, the inner experiences of the protagonists (their excitement, love, indifference to surroundings, etc.) and described the characters by their internal qualities.
