- This paper analyses texts with 'borrowed plots', i.e. plots that were used in other cultures before and have been written in a foreign language and in a foreign culture, and are very popular in other cultures. Their interpretations have minor divergences from the original story that reveal a linguistic and cultural basis. There have been three noticed models of assimilation of cultural concepts, such as complete adoption of a concept; incomplete adoption of a concept or assimilation; rejection or disregard of a concept. They are very interesting for linguistics and cultural studies because they show differences in similar cultural concepts. The material of the research includes secondary texts of fairy tales which appeared in different cultures. Divergences from the original story bear culturally specific features and can be used for comparison analysis and cultural studies.
