The article attempts to provide a more comprehensive analysis of the category of equality in English and Bulgarian. It discusses the conditions of expressing equality within the broader category of comparison of respective entities and the presence of a quality marked as [+scale]. The analysis of the exponents in the two languages independently points to intralingual dependence between the exponents of equality, similarity and identity. The contrastive analysis shows their interrelationships and indicates the areas where native or foreign language interference might occur.
