Annotation. This article is devoted to the description of speech characteristics of Spanish-speaking commentators’ socionic types. The focus is on the speech reactions of commentators to the news about vaccination against covid-19. The aim of the work is to evaluate the effectiveness of using corpus analysis techniques to identify the formal speech characteristics of socionic types of Internet commentators. The relevance of the research work is due to the fact that the problem of automatic attribution of a text according to the criterion of the psychotype of its author remains relevant today among specialists in the field of mathematical and computational linguistics. The novelty of the work lies in the use of corpus tools and formal metrics for the analysis of Spanish-language comments.

In the course of the work, we used such methods as contextual, stylistic, qualitative, quantitative and corpus analysis (Voyant Tools web application). The analysis made it possible to obtain interpretable data on the differences in the values of three formal parameters – average words per sentence, vocabulary density, readability index – in the comments of the representatives of six socionic types found in the research corpus. In addition, specific lexical units and grammatical constructions are defined for each type.

The main research perspective is the development of an automatic tool for detecting socionic personality types in social networks, which will be of practical importance for marketers and sociologists.

Keywords: socionics, linguistic personality, personatext, linguistic network personality, Internet commentator, psychotype, socionic type, corpus analysis, linguo-socionic modeling, covid-19 vaccination

The opposition relations in the system of english phrasal verbs

DOI 10.51955/2312-1327_2022_3_167

Abstract. The article deals with the types of opposition relations which exist in the system of English phrasal verbs, and the characteristic features of the oppositions of deadjectival phrasal verbs, such as black out, are analyzed in detail. The difficulties of the description of such opposition relations are caused by the complicated semantic structure of phrasal verbs, consisting of two elements, where each of the elements is a word. Phrasal verbs can have direct, rethought and idiomatic meanings. The joint rethought meaning of the analytical linguistic unit can be formed with the help of a verbal component, a particle, or the whole phrasal verb can be rethought. In the antonymic pairs of the phrasal verbs with the direct or rethought meanings either verbs or spatial particles can make oppositions. The antonymic relations of phrasal verbs with idiomatic meanings do not follow any rules. The example of deadjectival phrasal verbs with the verbal components black, white, light demonstrates the development of meanings of phrasal verbs and the way in which they form antonymic pairs. It is shown that phrasal verbs, formed from the adjectives denoting color, in certain meanings can be treated as antonyms due to their verbal components, while their particles do not usually form oppositions.

Keywords: Phrasal verb, particle, spatial relations, deadjectival verb, opposition relations.

Forecasting the development of the regional system of social upbringing

DOI 10.51955/2312-1327_2022_3_215

Zulfiya A. Aksyutina

Abstract. The analysis of scientific publications has shown that forecasting extrapolates trends and patterns of certain phenomena and processes into the future. Socio-pedagogical forecasting has not been properly developed and tested in practice, which is inherent in its inadequate complexity and versatility. An important feature in pedagogical forecasting is optimistic forecasting with the hope of success. Social upbringing remains poorly understood, and its forecasting in scientific research is not carried out. The purpose of the study is to forecast the development of the regional system of social upbringing in the city of Omsk.

The method of expert assessment was used for forecasting. The opinion of 786 experts who work as teachers of higher educational institutions and secondary specialized educational institutions of the city of Omsk was studied. The dynamics of the changes in the social upbringing in Omsk over five years, the dynamics of changes in individual assistance and social experience in the next five years were assessed; the necessary resources to improve social upbringing and the factors influencing the deterioration of the state of social upbringing were identified.

The respondents expressed a number of opinions regarding the ways of development of regional social upbringing. It was noted that it is more dependent on regional specific features. For a more meaningful development of the system of social upbringing, the support of local governments and their involvement in the existing problems in the field of social upbringing is required. The findings of the current study can be used to further model, design and plan the work on social upbringing in the region. The methodology according to which the study was organized may be of interest for conducting similar studies.

Key words: forecasting, expert assessment method, experts, social upbringing, regional system, forecast, futurology.

The Associative Meaning Of Russian Words In The Mental Lexicon Of Tuvan-Russian Bilinguals

DOI 10.51955/23121327_2022_3_142

А. А. Natpit

The subject of the article is the problem of forming the mental lexicon of Tuvan bilinguals. The experience of conducting a free associative experiment among Tuvan bilinguals and Russian monolinguals is presented, as well as the results of a survey on the most frequently used nouns in the speech of Tuvans. For the first part of the experiment, 10 most frequently encountered words in Russian were selected by interviewing Tuvan respondents to monitor the reactions of Tuvan and Russian informants to them. The conclusions are: 1) russian words give access to two mental lexicons at once – Russian and Tuvan; 2) monolinguals are dominated by syntagmatic reactions in Russian, while bilinguals have paradigmatic reactions even in Tuvan; 3) the number of updated links in bilinguals is greater than in monolinguals; 4) some connections among bilinguals are completely identical to those of monolinguals, but they are in the minority.

Key words: bilingualism, associative word content, Tuvan language, stimulus words.

Linguistic portrait of a teenager in the epistolary novel (based on “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” By S. Chbosky)

DOI 10.51955/2312-1327_2022_3_111

Abstract. The paper contains analysis of linguistic means employed by the author of an epistolary novel to characterize the personages through their speech. According to the hypothesis at the beginning of the research, the genre of an epistolary novel requires specific means of speech characterization. The result of the analysis of the narrator’s speech in the novel “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by S. Chbosky proved that syntactic means predominate in the linguistic portrait of a character. The novel consisting of personal letters, the linguistic portrait of the narrator seems to be the most elaborate one. Fragmented dialogues, included into the narrative, serve as the base for the principle of analogy and contrast between the main and minor personages. Linguistic portraits of teenagers in the novel “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by S. Chbosky are based on the same principle. Typical adolescent speech characterized by elliptical structures, a wide use of slang and even obscene words is opposed to Charlie’s structurally complete speech where he finds it difficult to include colloquial words. As the linguistic portrait of the main character approaches the stereotypical characteristics of teenage speech, he moves to the end of the process of his socialization.

Key words: speech portrait, speech characterization, linguistic means, epistolary novel, literary character, linguistic portrait of a personage.

Abstract. The article considers the functions of quotations in English printed advertising texts. It provides a summary of Russian and foreign scientists’ works on intertextuality, precedence and precedent phenomena, quotation and its functions, and the features of advertising texts. Advertisement is characterized by brevity, and advertisers resort to various linguistic means, in particular, to quotations, which, due to their complexity, make it possible to express more in fewer words. A new structural type of quotations, fake quotations, is observed; such quotations belong to fictional authors. The study reveals the frequency, sources, and structural characteristics of quotations in advertising texts through intertextual and contextual analysis. In total, six functions of quotations are identified: persuasive, ludic, image-forming, attractive, informative, and delimitative. Persuasive, ludic, and attractive functions occur in advertising text more frequently. The results of the study prove the importance of quotations in order to make advertising texts more impressive and increase the potential marketability of the product.

Keywords: quotation, advertisement, intertextuality, precedence, types of quotation.

Ekaterina V. Miletova

Abstract. The article is devoted to the analysis of the actualization of graphic means in the art discourse; the author focuses on the recurrent use of italics in thematic texts on art. The research material is English-language texts published in The Artist magazine, aimed at professional artists. The author emphasizes the pragmatic potential of graphic means in art discourse; it is aimed at drawing the addressee’s attention to significant pieces of information in the sphere of professional interaction between artists. The results of the research indicate the most common cases of italics’ usage in the communication of artists. Taking into account the semantic and pragmatic features of this corpus of linguistic units, we have identified the following lexical groups: 1) proper names (the name of the artist, the title of the work, the name of the museum, the title of the exhibition, etc.); 2) professional vocabulary (techniques and methods of painting, terms and their definitions, foreign words). Each presented group has its own frequency indicator within the analyzed sample.

Key words: art discourse, discursive markers, sign system, professional communication of artists, graphic means, italics, text, English.
