Keywords: paremiological units, components youth, senility, semantic opposition, mental representation, the person's age category

Abstract

The article investigates the semantics paremiological units with components youth, senility, selected for the analysis from various dictionaries. The peculiarities of mentality of the British and Americans have been revealed in their relation to the concept of "time". It has been found out that the British and Americans perceive time as a category of their personal life, as an event that can be planned. The positive aspects of the concept of "youth" have been supposed to be reflected more often in the linguistic consciousness of the British and Americans than the concept of "old age".
