Abstract: The paper analyses stereotypes related to abstract assessment concepts, such as evil, angry and good. The hypothesis is formulated that assessment system within the Lithuanian language largely reflects the speakers' outlook. Two types of sources are employed in the research 1) data of the Lithuanian language and 2) analysis of survery. In the dictionary entries the words "evil" and "angry" are often provided as synonyms. Based on the definitions of the terms, an evil person is morally bad and whose character traits are mappropriate and unpleasant. The definition of the term "angry" highlights these features. A bad person is quick tempered, quarrelsome, susceptible, abusive and has wicked aims and cheats others. The features of the bad man are supported by drawing a comparison of the opposites evil/angry and good/angry. The bad person is unkind, dishonest, unmerciful, untalented, disgraceful and deceitful.[...]
