Heading: The word of Oles Honchar in the dictionary
Language: Ukrainian

Abstract: The article is devoted to analysis of the Oles Honcharʼs conceptual picture of the world which is an important part of the development of modern Ukrainian language thinking. It also contributes to the development of Ukrainian linguistics and establishment of the state of Ukraine. In the creative heritage of the writer, the constants of Ukrainian and world culture (god, love, family, law, work, humanism) are presented, as well as new conceptual dominants that reproduce the renewal of Ukrainian worldview, the processes of democratization of society and the strengthening of Ukrainian statehood (power development, ecology, lingual creation, global thinking).

The rich Oles Honcharʼs vocabulary and his original conceptual image system reinforce contemporary macro-scientifi c research and provide understanding of the theoretical foundations of lexicology, lexicography, linguocognitology, linguoconceptology, linguoculturology, integral and authorʼs lexicography. The neo-lexicon of the writer is an invaluable source of fi lling of the general and authorʼs dictionaries, as well as an important part of the development of neology and neography.

The method of complex processing of lexical-semantic and fi gurative achievements of Oles Honchar is proposed. For this purpose, an integral lexicographic system is formed in which the conceptual model of the writerʼs world and the linguistic means of its reproduction are presented. In the electronic fi le system of Oles Honcharʼs lexical and fi gurative means, there is an opportunity to systematize quotes by keywords (concepts), frequency of words use, part of speech and stylistic parameters etc.

The conceptual, linguistic and authorʼs pictures of the world appear as a means of refl ecting the writerʼs idiostyle and his signifi cant contribution to the development of synthetic forms of reality reproduction. Such an approach is important for expressing the importance of the creative personality in the evolution of language and society. Oles Honchar appears as a writer, intellectual, thinker, apologist of high patriotism and apical spirituality.

Key words: Oles Honchar, conceptual picture of the world, language picture of the world, authorʼs picture of the world, idiolect, conceptuarium, neo-lexicon, authorʼs lexicography.
