Folk riddle was designed to establish how clearly in the mind of a particular person the idea of the surrounding world was formed. The knowledge tested by the riddle served as a guarantee of mastering the necessary knowledge and the basis for moving to the next step of the social ladder. Riddles were arranged in a certain order and required a certain skill of the mind. So, one of the first riddles were about natural phenomena (rain, wind, frost, snow). In this article, we consider the features of denotation representation of the designated cluster, the main characteristics that were used as the basis for drawing up a figurative description. The frequency of access to these denotations relative to the selected cluster, as well as their inclusion in complex riddles. The research uses the method of description, linguistic and cultural commentary, which allow us to draw conclusions about the key categories of the surrounding world perception by an archaic person. The authors come to the conclusion that the speed of the denote, its inaccessibility, invisibility, and tremendous impact on the surrounding world were important for describing denotation. It is established that a number of riddles are based on the description of a person's feelings after interacting with a particular denotatation. It claim that it is typical for the riddles of this cluster to use an anthropomorphic metaphor to put in the subject of action.
