Kuzieva N.M., Ashrapov P.B. Comparative Analysis of Morphological Peculiarities and Level of Usage of Coordinative Compound Adverbs in the Tajik Literary Language Appertaining to 18th-19th Centuries
The article under consideration dwells on the issue beset with comparative analysis of morphological peculiarities and the level of usage of coordinative compound adverbs (CCAs) on the example of the historical production entitled as “Tuhfat-ul-khani” by Muhammadwafoi Karminagi and “Zafar Name” by Khusravi. The author of the article makes an endeavor to divide CCAs into several sub-groups in terms of their structure and meanings.
It is worth stating that one of the most common ways of formation of CCAs in the corpus of our study is reduplication of parts of speech. It is proven that reduplication of Arabic original nouns is more frequently used than Tajik ones in the language of historical writings of the compared periods, upon the whole. It is underscored that reduplication of adjectives and numerals is not used to compose CCAs and reduplication of pronouns and verbs is encountered rarely in the corpus of the study.
Adducing the result of a comparative analysis beset with CCAs of “Tuhfat-ul-khani” by Muhammadwafoi Karminagi and “Zafar Name” by Khusravi one can come to the conclusion that in terms of structure and grammatical style they are similar to the correlative works and to MTLL ones.

Ishutin Yu.Yu. Evolution of the Death Motif in Lermontov’s Lyrics
The article deals with the death motif development in Lermontov’s lyrics. In the 1828–1832s the motif linked with the sense of the insurmountable fear of death. In the 1833–1836s Lermontov was gradually distancing himself of the phenomenon of death, he no longer attributed the fear of non-existence to his personal experiences, hence the perspective of the implementing this motif in the final period of the poet’s works was outlined. In the 1837–1841s death became a philosophical category. Death of a person was being perceived as the peaceful end of the earthly path, that made relevant a person’s inner life and related to a person’s feelings. Consequently, the final period of Lermontov’s works differs from the previous lyrics, where the key aspect was the physical death of a person.

Sycheva V.S. Phenomenon of the Regional Sense of humor in the Tuscan Poetry
The article considers the phenomenon of the national Tuscan sense of humour and the influence of local mentality on the poetry of the region. Quotes from the pieces of Guittone D’Arezzo, Rustico di Filippo, Dante Alighieri, Lorenzo de’ Medici, Francesco Berni and other authors of various periods, from the 13th to the 20th century, demonstrate in chronological order which part the specific Florentine irony takes in the process of formation, development and transformation of the Italian comic verse (or realistic verse). This genre arose not only as a poetical method but also as a reaction to the social and political situation. Comparative analysis of the poems allows us to follow the evolution of the Florentine poetic tradition and draw the conclusion about the cyclical nature of the literature process, confirmed by the regular return to the debunking of excessive tragedy in Italian poetry by the comic verse. In addition, the article reveals the common features of comic verse of different historical periods, which consist in the similarity not only of themes and motives but also of comic techniques based on the characteristic sceptical view of the life of Tuscans.
