Abstract. This article is dedicated to an ethnolinguistic research on exclamatory figures of speech with religious meaning, which accompany various emotional states. The study presents a fairly broad spectrum of «religious vocatives» in the paremy genre of Ukrainian folklore. The author concludes that, as compared to other European languages, Ukrainian and Polish languages contain much more exclamatory sayings of religious character. The appellative formulae being analyzed reflect popular religious beliefs, peculiarities of the people’s ethno¬psychological composition, as well as emotional culture.

Keywords: exclamatory figure of speech, exclamatory formula, «religious vocative», saying, appeal, appellation, semantics, popular speech, popular beliefs, religious outlook, emotions, emotional response, paremy, proverb.
