Associative organization is one of the models of knowledge storage in the memory of a person. In the course of our free associative experiment, a group of respondents was asked to respond to the given stimulus word. The received reactions to the word-stimulus clarify the relevance of different meanings of a multi-valued word for the lexicographer, the typical spheres of its use, frequency connections, allow us to reconstruct the semantic structure of the word. An associative article fixing reactions has not only a structural lexicographic, but also an ontological status. Its data can be used in medicine, cultural studies. The aim of our research is to characterize the format of knowledge, which represents the structure of the linguistic cultural thesaurus.
