Наивные представления о значениях слов в русском языке

The paper discusses various techniques of studying ideas about the 
meanings of word that are common to native speakers of modern 
Russian. These ideas sometimes differ significantly from traditional 
lexicographic descriptions. Alongside standard surveys where the 
informants are addressed directly, more specific experiments are 
performed, such as studying the behaviour of those participating in 
various linguistic games. The results of these experiments provide 
interesting linguistic material which proves useful for lexicographers 
working on modern explanatory dictionaries.
