The article is devoted to a comparative analysis semantic feature of paremiological units (PU) with a modality component, describing the character and appearance in English, Spanish and Tatar languages. PU with this component are interesting for studying the linguistic picture of the world of these three diverse languages. The relevance of the research is determined by the fact that phraseological units are one of the most complex and contradictory concepts in linguistics. This study is devoted to the comparative consideration of paremiological units with the modality component (CM) in English, Tatar and Spanish linguistics. The study was carried out at the intersection of linguocognitive, anthropocentric, structural-semantic, communicative-functional paradigms involving a large amount of ethno-cultural information of each language. This study is the first experience of systematic consideration and integral description of the PE with a modality component in English, Tatar and Spanish languages.
