Syntactic functions of oxymoron syntagms with sentence structure in the modern poetic dictionary

  • S. Zavalii


The article is devoted to the topical problem of modern linguo-stylistics – the study of the syntactic structure of oxymorons, functioning in Ukrainian poetic texts of the second half of the XX - beginning of the XXI century. In the given research, the types of oxymoron syntagms with the sentence structure are identified as active components of poetic syntax. The objective of this article is to analyze the syntactic nature of oxymoronic syntagms with the structure of simple and compound sentences in the poetic vocabulary of the second half of XX – beginning of XXI century. Achieving this goal involves the following tasks: select types of oxymoronic syntagms with sentence structure; to characterize the most productive oxymoron with the structure of simple and complex sentences; define the syntactic function of oxymoronic syntagms in poetic texts. The research determines the syntactic nature of oxymoron syntagms with the structure of simple and complex sentences on the basis of the antithetic relations that provide meaningful unity to poetic texts. Analysis of the actual material of this period gives grounds for sorting out oxymoron syntagms with the structure of a simple (single-component and bi-component) sentence and with the structure of a complex sentence with various types of communication.When analyzing complex oxymoron syntagms of this type, we conclude that the development of oxymoron meaning in such models is due to the expansion of the semantic space for the components and associated with a dynamic, self-absorbed process of human thinking, leading to the complexity of semantics due to the multidimensional opposing relationships between concepts.The structural-grammatical analysis of oxymoron syntagms in poetic texts showed that for the poetry of the period characterized by attraction toward complicated constructions, to associative relaxedness in the process of linguistic aesthetics of reality, which leads to the use of original author's oxymoron syntagms.It is promising to continue further studying the stylistic potential of syntactic structures, in particular oxymoron syntagms in the poetic vocabulary. Key words: antithetic attitude, binary oppositions, linguo-poetics, microcontextual oxymoron field, oxymoron syntagmas with simple sentence structure, oxymoron syntagmas with complex sentence structure, syntactic functions, poetic vocabulary, poetic syntax, predicate.
