This article is devoted to the Astrakhan regional names of water bodies. The research is based on the material of maritime and regional dictionaries of the 19th-20th centuries. The names of reservoirs represent a system, the elements of which are naturally connected by certain relationships. Extralinguistic characteristics serve as the basis for combining words into a thematic group, since the group of names reflects the real relations between geographical objects in the Astrakhan region and the logical connections between them, reflecting the prevailing historical perception of the territory. Lexicographic sources allowed the author to reveal the lexical and semantic features of the water regional vocabulary, since it is this association that most fully and expressively reflects the physical and geographical features of the Astrakhan region

Key words: egional vocabulary, thematic group, lexical and semantic relations
