East China Normal University in Shanghai
Abstract. The article gives the concept of vital and mortal vocabulary presented in the novel by B.L. Pasternak’s «Doctor Zhivago», which is considered taking into account the category of time («past — present — future»), which is due to the opportunity to come closer to a more complete understanding of the concepts of «life» and «death» as fundamental in the novel and in the writer’s representation. The highlighted semantic categories of mortal and vital vocabulary also make it possible to reveal the concept of a life path, the idea of a beginning and an end human life.
Keywords: vital vocabulary, mortal vocabulary, the concept «life — death», chronotope.
