Abstract | Full Text

The article considers functional and semantic features of colloquial vocabulary which differs at the present stage of development of the language by diffusion. The phenomena of transition of neutral lexemes to the periphery of the literary language due to a distribution of secondary colloquial and slang meanings are analyzed (жрать, ржать, достать, etc.). The article shows the specifics of the functioning of desemanticized colloquial verbs which indicate exaggerated, vigorous actions, made with enthusiasm (махнуть, чесать, etc.). The linguistic experiment on the basis of data of the National Corpus of the Russian Language is made and cases of redistribution of neutral and colloquial meanings are revealed. The results of the work can promote a deeper assessment of the condition of modern Russian and find application in the lexicographic presentation of the expressive colloquial speech.
