Stylistic Function of Occasional Words in Composition and Speech Patterns in Skaz “Levsha” (Left-Hander) by N.S. Leskov

Cover Page


First-person narrative (skaz) as a special genre uses occasional words to characterize narrator’s speech. In Leskov’s “Levsha” (Left-Hander) occasional words show the attitude of the narrator towards what he describes, express more complicated shades of meaning rather than create a substandard speech pattern of the narrator.
