The data from a free associative experiment with seven Bulgarian words with common semantic components are analysed. The associative fields covered by the words: river, sea, ocean and town, street, house, building are considered. A comparative analysis with data from a free associative experiment with Byelorussian words is made. The conclusion is that words with common semantic components tend to have a double linking. A great similarity between the associative fields of the words considered is found to exist in Bulgarian and Byelorussian. This proves both the linguistic relationship between the two languages and the closeness of the associative thinking of the native speakers of these languages.
