Summary/Abstract: The previous works on this issue pointed to some general principles and essential techniques that are related to the way in which the epic singer is building his verses of ten syllables. Our goal in this paper is to determine some principles in generating the epic poetic formula, and see how they are derived from a metric, stylistic and lexical-semantic aspect, that is, what determines the epic poetic formula – is its position within the verse by the influence of the meter, whether there was an unusual interweaving of the order of the word within the verse or the breakdown of the syntagms, etc., which is considered a stylistic condition in the realization, and finally whether there is a partial or global transposition of the meaning of the word which refers to the lexical-semantic domain which represents the third important aspect in observing the problems of the epic poetic formula. The goal is to approach the structure of the formulas. Excerpts will be more the content level of formulation not all possible in selected songs, i.e. examples of models with the use of lexemes without which an epic poem can not exist. In this research, the verification of epic poetic formulas was escorted in the collocation of lexemas related to the book mark, tower and horse, and other elements of the types of the content level of formulation that popular singers prefer in their work. The aim is to thoroughly examine the structure of epic poetic formulas whose integral part of the said lexeme, their position and the function in the construction of the verses of ten syllables.
