For isolated critical points of a real analytic function \(f:\;(\mathbb{R}^ 2,0)\to(\mathbb{R},0)\), the intersection matrices of the vanishing cycles (for the complexification) are obtained by A. M. Gabrielov [Funct. Anal. Appl. 7(1973), 182-193 (1974); translation from Funkts. Anal. Prilozh. 7, No. 3, 18-32 (1973; Zbl 0288.32011)] and S. M. Gusein-Zade [Funct. Anal. Appl. 8, 10-13 (1974); translation from Funkts. Anal. Prilozh. 8, No. 1, 11-15 (1974; Zbl 0304.14009)]. In the paper under review, the case of isolated line singularities (in the sense of Siersma) is treated, extending the method of Gusein-Zade.
