Puzanova N.A. SEMANTIC CORE OF A WORD AS MEANS OF DIFFERENTIATION IN THE LANGUAGE SYSTEM. (E.G. THE VERB "TO TAKE" AND "TO GRASP")The paper is concerned with determination of nature and cognitive realization of lexical polysemy. A primary goal is to identify the lexical prototypes of the verbs "to take" и "to grasp" that will help to draw the boundaries of their systemic meaning. Our procedure accounts for semantic differentiation of lexical items in the language system. The verb appears to have one systemic meaning, or its semantic core. In speech all senses of the verb evolve from the lexical prototype. Key words: the immediate lexical prototype, the invariant lexical prototype, language system, systematic meaning of a word.
