The article presents an analysis of figurative interpretation of phonation – communicatively meaningful element of speech situation associated with its central component (subject of speech). In the representation of voice the interaction of metaphorical and metonymic models, manifested in regular metonymic replacement of names of speaking subject nominations related to the voice is traced; conditioning of metaphorical model of «living being» metonymic logic conceptualization denotation is confirmed. In the interpretation of the speaking subject, this model has great potential – any characteristic of a specific subject, which somehow embodied through speech can be transmitted by voice nominations.
