Summary/Abstract: Some of the more important theoretical formulations of the essence of periphrasis are given in the beginning of the article. Our analysis was built on materials from the press by reviewing periphrasis words combinations. According to their semantics they are defined as logical, figurative and intermediate groups – such as the ones that start losing their figurativeness and tend to general ones. The figurative periphrases on their part are classified as periphrases metonymies and periphrases metaphors. In each periphrasis it is taken into consideration also the potential semes, which are updated in the actual context.
