The representatives of different nationalities of this region during two hundred years common existing saved and shared with each other of unique elements of language and culture, they also created some integral units, which origin are defined difficulty. The purpose of the analysis is to describe lexical parallels of family rites in the Ukrainian and Bulgarian dialects of investigating region, to determine integral and different units in Ukrainian and Bulgarian languages, which became a result of these ethnic groups’ language and culture common existing and interaction on this territory.

Originality. In contrast to other descriptions of interference process of lexical level of Ukrainian and Bulgarian languages in this area (I. Tsyganok, D. Kiosyeva) the author extents the list of lexical groups under consideration, besides it, he comes to the conclusion that Bulgarian dialects are also characterized by a lot of formal and semaintic variants.
