Аннотация. Исследование посвящено сопоставлению ценностных жанровых картин мира и входит в лингвокультурологическое направление языкознания, выявляющее лингвистический аспект культурно-обусловленного отношения к миру.

Коммуникация, которую структурируют жанры, есть важнейшая часть культуры, и жанры – ее формы – так же обусловлены субъективным, культурно-опосредованным ценностным взглядом на мир, как и культура в целом.

Жанровое своеобразие каждой культуры определяется набором жанров и содержательными характеристиками, которыми наделяется каждый жанр в данной культуре, их соотношением и оценочным отношением к ним.

Выявлены некоторые качественные различия в коммуникативном и речежанровом воплощении ключевых национальных концептов, отраженные как в структуре, так и в именах речевых жанров.
