Annotation: The article provides a reconstruction of the linguocultural features of one of the once most common phenomena in Central Russia - baroque shipping, which is revealed in many ways when studying A.N. Ostrovsky. The lexemes selected by the author for the original dictionary and their detailed interpretation reflect the specifics of the knowledge of the surrounding reality by the people who lived in the Volga region. The lexeme of the barka here can be called a staple, penetrating and stitching together that significant part of the vocabulary, which is thematically directly related not only to river transport, but also to the customs of people traditionally engaged in river craft. The lexico-semantic field “navigation”, the core of which is the word barka, is represented here by vocabulary typical for the Volga regions, which plays a significant role in the ethno-dialect description of the area. ‟Materials..” A.N. Ostrovsky show that barka shipping was that significant element of the culture of the Volga region, which had its own specific artifacts, traditions associated with them and the corresponding professional vocabulary. This is also confirmed by the data of the modern Russian language, where many lexemes of similar subjects are preserved, but often with new semantic content.
Keywords: A.N. Ostrovsky, dictionary, barka, burlak, professional vocabulary, Volga region, linguocultural specifics.
