Abstract. The paper explores the notion of “joy” in three linguistic worldviews - Russian, French and Chinese. The study is contrastive, the results are compared. The description of each notion is carried out according to a clear algorithm: the etymology of the word, the mythological roots of the notion, its collocability are investigated, the material connotation according to V. A. Uspensky is isolated from the collocability, the dictionary definitions are compared. The purpose of the research is to identify the peculiarities of representation of the notion of “joy” in different cultures using the material of the semantic field in Russian, French and Chinese, at the same time conducting a comparison in order to see similarities and differences in the worldview of different peoples. This topic is underexplored, there have been no linguocultural studies analysing Russian, French and Chinese cultures, which accounts for the scientific novelty of the work. As a result, the researchers have been able to determine a clear difference in the ideas of joy in the three cultures studied. The research findings will contribute to the establishment of mutual understanding between the cultures, forming a kind of conceptual bridge.
