Abstract. The article is devoted to the consideration of the objectification peculiarities of the social exclusion and social inclusion categories in the territorial aspect in the Russian language on the case of the "glubinka" ("hinterland") and "glush" ("wilderness") concepts. As a result of the definitional analysis of the eponymous lexemes denoting these concepts, nuclear semantic features are identified – large distance from an object with different social conditions (hinterland) and a large distance from the center and sparse population (wilderness). The concepts are characterized from the standpoint of the semantic field. It is established that the core of the semantic fields of the "glubinka" ("hinterland") and "glush" ("wilderness") concepts are linguistic units that directly indicate nuclear semantic features. The periphery is comprised of the units that actualize the processes of social exclusion and in some cases social inclusion. Verbs with negation and predicative No are noted to be the common prevalent linguistic means that express the category of social exclusion, while the units of the thematic group "social difficulties"; quantitative qualifiers which indicate a low (up to a minimum) degree of something (semantic field "hinterland"); verbs of socially conditioned displacement, and deictic units (semantic field "wilderness") are viewed as distinctive ones. It is concluded that the "glush" ("wilderness") lexeme objectifies the processes of territorial social exclusion in the context to a greater extent than the "glubinka" ("hinterland") lexeme.

Key words: social exclusion, social inclusion, semantic field, semantic field "hinterland", semantic field "wilderness", core, periphery.
