Modern linguistics regards language as a social phenomenon closely connected with the culture and history of a particular people. The focus is on the identity of the native speaker, which is revealed through the study of the human language, reflects the spiritual essence, motivation and value hierarchy existing in the mind of the native speaker. Cognitive linguistics examines the mental processes that occur during perception, comprehension, knowledge of reality by consciousness, as well as the types and forms of their mental representations. It is included as an integral part of cognitology – the integral science of cognitive processes in the mind of a person, providing operational thinking and knowledge of the world. The article summarizes theoretical data concerning the conceptual apparatus of cognitive linguistics in modern language studies, defines the basic concept of cognitive linguistics – the concept, focuses on its multilayer character, evaluates the proposals on the methods for its classification and analysis. Three scientific paradigms concerning the study of language are analyzed – comparative-historical, systemic-structural and anthropocentric. The main directions of modern linguistics, which are formed within the framework of these paradigms – cognitive linguistics and linguoculture – are defined. Especially significant notions in terms of linguodidactic aspect – the code of culture, the cultural concept, cultural settings, cultural connotation, cultural space, the linguistic picture of the world – are highlighted. The assertion that linguoculture is a humanitarian discipline that studies the material and spiritual culture embodied in the living language, reflected in the linguistic processes, is proved. It also allows to establish and explain how one of the fundamental functions of language – to be an instrument for the creation, development, conservation and broadcasting culture – is implemented.
