Through a discussion of phraseological units and metaphorical verbal meanings, the article attempts to get to the essence of the similarities between Bulgarian and Greek, i. e. specific analytical oppositions with certain types of verbs as their basic elements. The identity of these oppositions, on which the analytical character of both Bulgarian and Greek is grounded, determines the identical structural type of both languages, hence their identical phraseological type. Special stress is put on the importance of the long-lasting intensive contact between the two languages.
