The article concentrates on basic aspects of general phraseology. With regards to contemporary discussions on phraseology, it describes and with the help of German-Czech examples documents three trends in the interpretation of general phraseology: phraseology in narrow, wider and the widest sense of word. At the same time, it classifies three appropriate ways in understanding phraseology units. It also deals with the qualities and components of elementary phraseology units and it presents some metaphorical composites, terminological and onymic word connections, colloquials, nomination stereotypes, verb-nominal structures, phrasal structures and texts with fixed forms.
