The article is devoted to a comparative analysis of the semantic features of paremiological units (PU) with a modality component, related to the abstract concepts of love, happiness, the meaning of life, luck in English, Spanish and Tatar languages. The theoretical significance of the research lies in the fact that the work will supplement scientific materials on linguistics, which will contribute to the development of issues of universality, national characteristics of the compared languages and the definition of elements of the world language picture. The practical significance of the study lies in the fact that the totality of the minds of native speakers and representatives of different cultures determines the conditions for successful intercultural communication that helps to overcome the language barrier.
