Linguistic custom shows that the notions 'morality' and 'ethics' are often identified as one. Ethics is understood by the users as a stylistically more sophisticated synonym of morality. According to the detailed study, 'morality' can be used interchangeably with the lexeme 'ethics' only in non-terminological meanings 'functioning in a certain society system of attitudes, norms and evaluation of conduct' and 'behavior referring to the system' on condition that the context of the word 'morality' does not reveal the semantic component 'conviction' or 'actual behavior, action'. The lexeme 'ethics' can be replaced by 'morality' if the context does not bring out the semantic aspect 'action which is a realization of a specific system of norms, principles and evaluations'.
