Summary/Abstract: The aim of this article is to describe the temperature terms domain in Bashkir. The research is a part of Maria Koptjevskaja-Tamm’s project aimed at describing the typology of temperature adjectives. The research revealed that in Bashkir it is possible to distinguish the same kinds of temperature evaluation as in many other languages: tactile temperature, non-tactile temperature and personal-feeling temperature. Although all the three domains are covered with the same four lexemes, they behave differently depending on the particular domain they describe in every particular case.
