Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article is devoted to the analysis of the functions of the statement Yes or no in the speech of lover in the works of A. P. Chekhov. The analysis is based on fragments of works by A. P. Chekhov: This and That: Four Vignettes (1881), A Sign of the Times (1883-84), The Bear (1888), A Marriage Proposal (1888), Ivanov (1887). It is revealed that the discursive unit Yes or no has a number of functions for the author-narrator and a number of pragmatic functions for the subject of the situation of declaration of love. For the author-narrator these functions are: the function of marking the declaration of love discourse, the function of marking the tonality of the narrative, the function of marking the intersection of the situation of declaration of love with the situation of marriage proposal. For the subject of the situation, these are function transfer of rights to speak, function of hesitation, function of conceptual significance.
