Linguistic Field: Ling & Literature
Abstract: 1. Expressive finction of absolute constructions can not be always expressed grammatically in Russian, like it does in English. Instead, it is expressed by lexical means. Or lexical and syntactical means are combined withing one translated sentence./L/2. In a sentence " with a sigh the angel glanced round the veranda, but Bermis and Otis were not in sight" L. Bespalova could translate the work angel as ангел, but the ironic function would be lost as angel in Russian has a romantic meaning.She found a good way out: angel as replaced with Russian душка which has a diminitive suffix and therefore used with a shade of irony./L/3. Expressiveness in Russian is often achieved by stress words так, и так, только что./L/4. Sometimes parts of the English sentences have to be changed in Russian translation to achive the same effect on a reader.
