Abstract: The article deals with the features of toponymic periphrases in Ukrainian media. Illustrational material is periphrastic names of Ukrainian cities, that were analyzed from connotative and functional view. The features of the secondary nominations and their symbolic meanings confirm that toponymic semantics motivates new secondary category, which includes complex of associations and broad cultural connotations. That is the evidence of active processes in language development. Analyzed secondary units in the media texts make it possible to conclude that intensive creation of toponymic periphrasis indicates the dynamic development of language consciousness of Ukrainian society.
