Heading: To the 150-th anniversary of the birthday of Lesia Ukrainka
Language: Ukrainian

The author of the article studies the phenomenon of the precedent personality of Lesia Ukrainka as a culturally significant phenomenon of the national-linguistic picture of the world of Ukrainians in the reception of modern speakers. The author turned to the study of the internal lexicon of such authoritative native speakers as Oles Honchar, Oksana Zabuzhko on the example of the titles of works about Lesia Ukrainka. The textual interpretation of this culturally significant figure reflects the peculiarities of the perception of a particular historical and cultural personality as a motivator of a nationally marked precedent name. The change in the principles of studying the life and work of the writer is reflected in the differential features of her precedent name, already actualized in the headlines.
The role of Ukrainian literature of the XIX – beg. XX century in the formation of a nationally conscious stratum of Ukrainian society and today remains decisive. Awareness of the national idea, its crystallization in the apt poetic word contributed to the unification of nationally indifferent citizens to build an ideologically united, conciliar state. Texts and ideas, images, sayings, sometimes written more than a hundred years ago, remain meaningful and relevant to the modern speaker.
Analyzing the titles of articles and sections, we consider them as a kind of associative-verbal network, which illustrates the author’s thought-receptive actions and associations caused by the verbal motivator (proper name-stimulus) “Lesia Ukrainka”. Thanks to this approach, we can consider them as individual and as those that allow the identification and description of differential features that form the core of the precedent name, which actualizes a certain bundle of knowledge and assessments related to the precedent personality of Lesia Ukrainka in the linguistic consciousness of Oles Honchar and Oksana Zabuzhko.
