Despite the fact that axiological interpretation of the linguistic and logical categories of evaluation, the problems of the value picture of the world and values, as well as the interpretation of appraisal, are rather widely represented in the works of modern Russian and foreign scientists, the problem of evaluation today has been more developed in the lexical system of the language than in phraseological corpus, that also explains our interest to the representation of the evaluation category in the units of secondary nomination.The main aim of this work is to study the evaluative component in the meaning of verbal phraseological units, describing human behavior in English, Russian and Tatar languages. Phraseological units denoting human behavior are one of the most active formation of the phraseological structure of any language. This group of phraseological units takes a significant place in phraseological system of Russian, English and Tatar languages as well, is characterized by semantic and structural diversity and expresses specific appraisal of the world and a person in it. The authors take an attempt to study evaluation as one of the macro components of the connotation of phraseological meaning of the researched units, suggest their own scale of emotive marks, separately consider the interaction of evaluation with expressiveness, emotiveness.
