Abstract

In our time, for some reason, it is commonly believed that the Ukrainian language does not use the word "ad" for the reason that it, firstly, is probably Russian and in the Ukrainian vocabulary it has never been, and secondly, on the basis that exists his match is -please. In other words, the position advocated, according to which in the Ukrainian language the Greek word-guade (hell) stands out exclusively the word -plex. However, observing the etymology of the Ukrainian word - hell (more specifically, it is a matter of going somewhat below), we note that it is not always possible to speak in its content.
