Ganyushina M.A., PhD in Philology, Associate professor of the Department of Foreign Languages for nonlinguists, Russian State Social University, Moscow, Russia,
The article focuses on the problem of the symbolic properties of language and linguistic sign within of the world language image (further WLI). Its solution offers the prospect of a deeper understanding of the relationship of language and culture. As a subject of study the metaphorical rethinkings of different concepts in English and Russian languages with the components of ancient symbols, legends left their mark on the world perception of different nations. The study shows the way the linguistic sign begins to express symbolic ideas, influence the semantics of expressions, closely cooperating with the cultural space, a myth and modern associations.

Keywords: language image of the world, mythological consciousness, legends, symbol, etymology, myth, culture.
