The article identifies linguistic "initial phenomena" of lyrical genres, forming the core of genre identity of the work and having universal character - supernatural and supranational. It has been concluded that the non-literary "other" in relation to which artistic speech, first of all its lyrical subsystem taken in the aspect of its genre structure, is self-determined, is deixis. On the basis of the analysis of the philosophical lyrics of Russian and Tatar poets of the XIX-XX centuries, it has been established that the genre of "definitions" goes back to the deuttic elements of language. In Russian and Tatar literatures it has similar features: the focus on the process of knowledge (dominance of the hermeneutic code), the reflection in the subject architect of the works of the processes of identification and self-identification of the lyrical subject, the use of tropical and mythopoetic figurative "languages." At the same time in Tatar poetry this genre has distinctive features related to the specifics of the manifestation of personal origin in Tatar literature, its characteristic forms of authorship, procedures of meaning inherent in this type of culture.
