The article considers the designations of the FREEDOM concept in the linguocultures of European ethnic groups. The analysis is carried out in the framework of the myth-oriented semiosis theory and the methodology of M-logic. The initial development program of verbally represented “free” open systems is reconstructed via etymological interpretations of the concept’s names. Respective cluster of senses is treated off as the premises of further semantic transformations. The paper addresses a “linguoculture” as a semantic space outlined by verbal signs which embody the patterns of human interpreting phenomena, modeling images of the world or alternative realities as well as pattern of verbal interactions responsible for triggering the shifts in the states of affairs. Linguocultural and linguo-semiotic features of units denoting WILL or a FREE OBJCET are identified from the standpoint of the systems’ theory and universaliaoriented linguistics. The paper employs a universal model of an open system’s hierarchical structure as a frameset for interpreting and classifying noemic senses. This model encompasses categorial dichotomies “abstract” / “general” − “specific”, “spirit” − “matter”, «social” − “personal” and reflects the fractal nature of semantic clusters’ configurations (semantic projections) at “subsystem˂, “system” and “oversystem” levels. Special attention is paid to the reconstruction of linguocultural senses that resulted from the analysis of semantics of the units verbalizing FREEDOM Germanic epic texts, Latin Biblical texts, and modern fantasy fiction and song lyrics. The article provides linguosemiotic and functional characteristics of designations of FREEDOM / “free object”.
