Abstract
The article is devoted to the linguistic analysis of the archaic vocabulary of the Ossetian language compared with its dialect forms in order to identify similar semantic characteristics and differential features of morphogenesis. Step-by-step analysis of synonymous pairs of dialect variants identified lexical groups with relatively frozen semantics, established various borrowing paths and forms of metaphoric transformation as main differential features, characterized forms and methods of metaphorization and identified their potential participation in formation of semantic fields. Ways of semantic integration and actualization of dialect forms with preservation of other variants are features of modern dialect synonyms functioning in one language. The importance of synchronous development of both dialect forms and derivational processes was emphasized.
