Methodology of concept’s comprehensive analysis is made on the field basis, when basic unit of study is conceptual field – meaningful category, established in homogeneous text’s linguistic units connected with the concept. This approach had allowed to identify concept’s interpretative areas that formed by conceptual fields. Classification of lexical-semantic tools that are connected with words – concept nominees, was made in this article, as well as there were discovered their system connections and identified a number of studied concept’s key characteristics. Setting the hierarchical relationships between these tools made it possible to conduct an integrated description of the concept as a complex text construct.

Content of the leading text concepts is formed in accordance with the pragmatic text’s goals; their relationships and interactions determine its semantic frame.
