Phraseological units of sign-name of emotional negative state of a person with the second meaning – mental negative state


Phraseological units of a sign as differentiating semantics signs are able to realize the semantics of a state of varying emotionality degrees. We describe such stable phrases. A person’s assessment of objects, events that cause emotions, as well as the experiences perception, a qualitative assessment of the situation is not only in their nomination, but this assessment also implements a multi-layer semantic volume. There is no doubt that any emotion is evaluative in nature, intellectual processes, social status and origin, age, etc influence on emotional processes of the subject. The content of these phraseological signs demonstrates the actualization of the negative and positive characteristics of the state of a person. The material of the author's file has shown that phraseological feature signs are necessary means of conveying an emotional state, since the expression of an assessment differentiating reality is the strongest nomination in a feature; we analyze the features of the semantics formation in the process of complication and complexity of emotional characteristics, since emotions differentiate and form various types, which differ in some of their development features and patterns. We describe the content and functioning of phraseological units in texts of different genres.
