The paper is devoted to the search for ethno-cultural uniqueness of the expression 
of moral qualities in the vocabulary of the Chinese language with the meaning 
“good”. The main assumption about prevailing the ethical criterion over the 
aesthetic one is actualized in the frequency of using lexical units containing the 
lexeme “good”. An extensive authentic material of contemporary Chinese fi ction 
and essay studies is used for the analysis. By the method of continuous sampling, 
the authors selected 52 lexical units with the lexeme “good”. These examples are 
analyzed in terms of correspondence of the lexical units, used by Chinese writers, 
to their vocabulary defi nitions. The results of the study are presented in the form 
of summary tables. The authors come to a conclusion that a thorough semantic 
analysis is needed to select an adequate translation equivalent.
Keywords: lexeme “good”, lexical unit, ethno-cultural specifi city.
