Abstract | Full Text

The article deals with the problem of modern Russian social and political vocabulary specificity. The peculiarities of basic typological characteristics of a political word unit, i.e. ideological abusement, and originality of its reflection on the level of a word semantic structure and all semantic macro components of the meaning are observed in the paper. Special attention is paid to the description of semantic and stylistic neutralization processes in the meaning of political lexical units in modern Russian and their mainstreams.
