Expressive word formation as linguo-cultural phenomenon
Tatyana Y. Schuklina
The article deals with the problem of the Russian word formation study revealed in the linguistic and cultural aspect. The paper exposes the national and cultural dependence of linguistic phenomenon of expressive derivation on the basis of specifics analysis of Russian emotionally expressive formations among proper (personal) names functioning in the language of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s literary works, as the writer's novels reflect the mentality of the Russian people and specifics of Russian philosophical thought. It was found that the functional-semantic message of expressive personal names is high. The semantics of these formations reflects particularities of Russian self-consciousness, the degree of human emotions manifestation and the specific nature of human relationships typical for Russian culture, and often associated with certain age status.
