The spiritual component of people’s development directly depends on their cultural-linguistic judgement of the world as comprehension and acceptance by a person him/herself in the world through the culture prism occurs under the influence of the language forming spirit and the soul of both a separate person, and the whole people. In a word and through a word there passes human energy, subsequently transforming into reality. The Christian doctrine about the Word-Logos, «the life word», taken for the basis in V.F. Ern, S.N. Trubetskoy's researches, etc., continues to interest of modern researchers.
