Cover Page

Abstract


The paper deals with the problem of nonce-word meaning. Nonce-word is analyzed as a semiotic unit which possesses significant, denotative and pragmatic meaning. The correlation between different meanings is considered. The particular attention is devoted to denotative and connotative content of nonce-words: we research the causes of pragmatic information in unusual word, grammatical and semantic manners of its actualization and the interaction between denotative and connotative meaning of the word.
