Pushkin’s nonce words in the word-formation aspect

Annotation

The study deals with the phenomenon of nonce words formation in the language of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin. The research novelty is due to language material analysis aspect that was chosen by the author. In spite of such a great number of research works describing Pushkin's nonce words from the word-formation standpoint we make an attempt to deepen and develop the existing data. The goal of the study is to reveal specific features of nonce formation in the lan-guage of A.S. Pushkin. Nonce words are selected using the method of continuous sampling. These words receive the “nonce words” status as a result of their comparison with the units of the “Explanatory Dictionary of the Living Great Russian Language” by V.I. Dal. As a result of the analysis of the language material 247 nonce units are singled out, modes of their formation are defined. Thereafter, the nonce words are categorised into groups according to the mode of their formation. A statistical analysis of the material is also made. The most productive way of nonce formation is defined. The larger part of Pushkin’s nonce words is derived according to existing in the Russian language word-building patterns. The most productive ways of nonce words formation are defined in the actual work. The research helps to explain the use of nonce words in the writer’s works from the linguistic standpoint.
