The article focuses on theoretical issues for investigation of cognitive processes involved in the formation of derived adjectives in  the German language. The  paper focuses on  the  adjectives formed by  suffixation and semantically grouped under the categorial meaning of ‘quality’. Primary attention is paid to cognitive modelling of the adjectives in  question. The  article seeks to  outline the  cognitive models responsible for  structuring the  concept ‘quality’. In  ddition we show the particularities of these models in relation to the German language. We employ the approach within which the cognitive model is considered to be identical with the word-formation model. Thus twenty-three main cognitive models are singled out in the paper. The polysemy of corresponding derived adjective in the German language is proven to be of fundamental importance to the construction of cognitive model. The cognitive features of adjectives grouped under the categorial meaning of ‘quality’ are not always motivated by one specific stem, and almost always appear as the result of combination of two or more stems.
