Summary/Abstract: The work which we have titled Lexico-semanic distinctiveness of Dzumhur’s travelogue has several objectives: • Actualization of lexicological and general semantic study of the Bosniak travelogue; • Spotting, separating and defining the broad lexico-semantic structure of the Bosnian language, which Zuko used in his own way; • The specific combination of lexical units is monitored by different criteria: by belonging to certain aspects of the use, origin, status, frequency of occurrence...the emphasis is on onomastics and phrases; • Reinterpretation of theoretical principles of lexical semantics in the Bosnian language using examples from the corpus; • Without figurative lexicon, language wouldn’t be able to express all shades of meaning, i.e. fuller and more comprehensive meaning. Therefore, some attention will be devoted to stylistic procedures.
