Cover Page

Abstract


Currently, one of the topical issues of contemporary phraseology is studying of phraseological semantics. The article considers phraseological and proverbial semantic innovations in the texts of different styles and genres written by one author. Examples of some phraseological configurations are provided and semantization ways and means of phraseological units and proverbs in the text are analyzed in the article. The novelty of the study consists in the fact that the ways of the author’s “self-definition” and its role in the shaping phraseological semantic understanding are described. Particular attention is paid to the semantic transformations of phraseological units in the text, by which phraseological units receive an additional semantic nuance, a new meaning or connotation’s changing. The language of L. Tolstoy is used as illustrative material in the study.
