The paper presents the results of the ongoing research on creating the semantic field of empire. A semantic field is a collection of words and word combinations covering a certain area of human experience and forming a relatively autonomous microsystem with one or several centres. Relations in such microsystems are also called associations. We draw upon data on syntagmatic collocability and distributional analysis techniques to form a set of lexical units connected by systemic paradigmatic relations of various types and strength. We have developed a methodology to fill a semantic field with lexical units based on morphologically tagged corpora and Sketch Engine built-in tools of statistical distributional analysis. Text material is represented by our corpora in the domain of empire. As part of the study, we have retrieved lists of items filling the semantic field of empire. Our research is focused on the concept of empire in different languages; therefore, we also deal with translation equivalents in language pairs.
