Abstract Nouns with Evaluative Meaning: Semantics and Structure

Abstract: The present research addresses English abstract nouns with evaluative semantics, which are connected with emotional, intellectual and spiritual activities of a person. The role of abstract words as means of expressing evaluation is discussed. Trends and mechanisms of their formation in the language system are outlined. The analysis of the semantic attributes of the lexical units under analysis presupposes their classification into lexical-sematic groups.

Keywords: word-formation, abstract evaluative noun, lexical-sematic group, semantic derivation, affixation, conversion, word composition
