The article deals with the fact of late comparative and confrontation studies in the field of phraseology combine in themselves the whole complicated complex of culture and psychology of ethnos, f unique way of its figurative thinking. Therefore the problems of sphere search, points of different language contacts, their phraseological stocks provokes a significant interest of linguists today and envisages the necessity of a detailed description of both universal and individual possibilities of phrase functioning.
The article accentuates the indisputable fact a comparative and confrontation method gives every possibility for a profound study of functioning specificity in a concrete language, to add available information by means of comparison and contrastive studies of language units. However, it is noted that at all preferencies of comparative and confrontation methods phraseology studies of nowadays face a number of difficulties which can be explained by the insufficient treatment of theoretical problems of phraseology and the lack of unanimous principles of lexicographic elaboration of phraseological stock of different languages in comparative and confrontation plane. Insufficient phrase semantics study finds its reflection in discrepancies, which occur in the issues of stock, limits and methods of studying comparative and confrontation phraseology from the point of view of lexicographic theory and practice. Till the present day the criteria of defining phraseological units have not yet been finally established, there is also lack of thoughts concerning categorical properties of this language unit.
Taking into account aspect, functional and sense correlation between concrete phrasemes of Ukrainian and English enabled to propose the following qualitative types of interlanguage correlations: identity, lexical variability or structural synonymy, hypero-hyponymy, stylistical conclusion is drawn that practically the same qualitative types of semantic correlations are seen within each of the languages under investigation, however, with the difference that instead of direct identity of components and structure an indirect identity of their regular meanings is available and these correlations underlie the possibility of translating into another language.
