Abstract:

The functions and the semantic nuances of the particle “oneself” in the colloquial speech are analyzed in the article. These semantic nuances as well as the functions of the clitic “oneself” are determined not solely by the valency of the verb but also by the specifics of the colloquial communicative sphere. In some events the particle “oneself” may have a predominantly emotional-expressive function, in others – modal, and in third ones – a modal-expressive function. The emotional-expressive and the modal function of the particle oneself are analyzed in the presentation. The word formation particle oneself and the reflexive pronoun “oneself” are beyond the scope of our investigation because they are not stylistically marked in the colloquial sphere of communication.

Keywords:

particle, emotional-expressive function, modal fucntion, semantic nuances.
