The paper aims at analysis of processes and results of language reflections in the field of source “touch” in Czech and Russian comparison. Interrelations are numerous. It is supposed that the same source of perceiving touch makes possible to create a limited number of conceptual metaphors in similar schemas, e.g. “container” or “tube”.

Key words: language reflections, field of source, touch, Czech and Russian comparison, conceptual metaphors and schemas
