Sergeeva A.B. Neology and Discourse (On French Material)
In the article the factors influencing neological activity of the person are defined and it is also considered how presence of a neologism sets structural-semantic characteristics of a statement. As the result of the use of a new unit in speech new «intense» structures are created that is a consequence of the special attention of speaking (writing) person to form of expression of new contents. The statement is being made with a view to create higher discursive tension stimulating an active position of the addressee and presupposing certain discursive strategies of the author: the strategy of dissosiation from the performing a new unit, demonstrating difficulty of breaking the neological barrier, and, on the contrary, the strategy stimulating neological courage of the author – various forms of modalization of a statement, placing of a neologism into the paradigmatic rows integrated either by form (the words of similar word-formation models), or by sense (groups of words having a common semantic component).
