Жанрово-стилевая обусловленность функционирования грамматической категории рода имени существительного в старорусских церковно-публицистических памятниках XVI века (на материале «слов» Иосифа Волоцкого и «посланий» Нила Сорского)
The collected papers contain articles by famous and young scientists on actual problems of philology (cognitive linguistics, lexical semantics, semiotics, pragmatics, text linguistics, stylistics; poetics, literary criticism; translation, intercultural communication). The issue also presents research on foreign language teaching methods. The edition is addressed to linguists, translators, teachers, postgraduates, students and a wide readership.
The paper discusses actualization of a significant modality category, specifically, the logical-semantic category of hortativity on the basis of analysis of an exhaustive set of modal meanings. The relationship between the logical and language modalities is revealed. The study identifies grammatical features of realization of the central and peripheral means of expressing the hortative modality in the text of the Gospel of St. Matthew. In the text under consideration, linguistic means are used to express the entire spectrum of emotional-hortative meanings, from the most delicate, polite, precatory to the most vehement, aggressive, obstinate ones. Along with the primary meanings, the semantic structure of hortative utterances includes also connotative meanings which are expressed in combination with the primary ones. Overlapping of the primary and connotative meanings is a specific feature of explication of the hortativity category in the text of the New Testament.
