Mythology is a necessary stage of cultural development in the history of any nation. When a person creates myths, he is in search of the meaning of life and tries to: 1) to fit your life into the framework of a larger whole; 2) to discover a certain structure underlying being; 3) to understand, despite everything, that life has meaning and value. The mythologeme "split stone" in the ethnoculture of the peoples of the North Caucasus, reflected in the novels of the Ingush writer I. Bazorkin, echoes the primitive ideas about the arrangement of the world among different peoples of the world. Since the ethnolinguoculture of the peoples of the Caucasus stands apart among various language classifications, we turn to the analysis of the concept-mythonym "split stone" to identify general and moments of interpretation of the meaning of this concept. Hypothesis: the concept of "split stone" is the basic ethnic idea of the Ingush about the structure of the world order, about the influence of moral qualities of a person on the properties of the surrounding world.
