This article deals with the analyses of the concept of the House, from the cognitive perspectives of the Shughni language, on the basis of material collected among native speakers, which allowed to reveal the inner content of the concept. The analysis demonstrates that the semantic field of the conception of the house in the Shughni language includes notions related both to architectural elements, their religious and philosophical interpretations, and many other abstract concepts related to the motherland. This concept, like in many other languages, has a close relationship with the concept of Family.
