Summary/Abstract: The paper offers a parallel comparative analysis of the concept “cabbage” (капуста/зеле) in the Bulgarian and Russian linguacultures. The theoretical part of the article contains a brief account of the achievements of the Bulgarian linguaculturology. The analytical part embraces the semantic variants of the lexemes капуста/зеле in each of the two linguacultures, their cognate words as well as idiomatic expressions, proverbs, sayings and pieces of folklore containing these components. The analysis shows that in the Bulgarian linguaculture the word “cabbage” has mainly negative connotations. On the contrary, due to the fact that cabbage was a basic product in the traditional Russian diet, in the Russian linguaculture капуста has more positive connotations.
