In this article the author has considered methodological questions of ontology of language and manifestation of a human factor in it. The principle of anthropocentrism, which has become the leading one in modern linguistics, caused the formation of the paradigmatic pluralism, allowing to establish the main aspects of a dichotomy "language – the person". Importance of the cognitive aspect of this dichotomy allowing to define a community of linguocentric and anthropocentric approaches to the language is justified.

anthropocentrism principle, "language–person" dichotomy, semantics, language picture of the world, cognitive status of the word, linguistic image of the person.
