Abstract

The article analyzes the phraseological units of the Ukrainian and Polish languages motivated by folk perceptions of the etiology of diseases; describes ethnocultural features of the formation of the analyzed units; and reveals that in Ukrainian and Polish phraseology the idea of personification and demonic origin of diseases is highlighted by coding in the phraseological units: 1) the outward appearance of mythical creatures similar to the appearance of an afflicted person; 2) specific actions of the personified disease that lead to the deterioration of health or even death; 3) folk ways of treating illness and so on.
