The article deals with the theory of nomination in linguistics. The secondary nomination is formed as a result of the development of the internal form of the word meaning and the background knowledge of the native speakers about the environment in the correlation between «name – reality – being». The formation of Kazakh language paraphrases is the result of a secondary nomination. Scientists in the field of linguistics consider it necessary to establish differences and similarities in the content and structure of periphrastic words from metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, euphemisms, taboos, word combinations, compound words and phraseological units. Lexicologists put forward such nominative properties of periphrastic names as semantic unity, use in figurative meaning and the existence of two or more words in their structure, which is peculiar to phraseological units, sustainable combinations and stylistic figures. For example, the black continent (Africa), the foggy Albion (England), the blue fuel (gas), the iron lady (Margaret Thatcher), the century illness (AIDS), the island of freedom (Cuba), etc.
