Abstract. The paper aims to reveal universal and nationally specific semantic features of articles in the English and French languages by the material of the English and French translations of F. M. Dostoevsky’s novel "Crime and Punishment". Scientific originality of the study involves identifying peculiarities of article usage in non-related languages in the situation of indefinite reference. The findings are as follows: the researcher justifies the hypothesis on a proto-article existence, substantiates the thesis that the author’s style and the translator’s personality do not significantly influence the choice of article to precede a referential noun.
Key words and phrases: параллельные тексты, переводной дискурс, референциальный выбор, инвариант артикля, референция имени, parallel texts, translation discourse, referential choice, proto-article, name reference
