Abstract


The article analyses the functioning of the lexeme “people” in the aphoristic corpus of the Russian language. It describes the basic conceptual varieties verbalized in aphoristic utterances. It is stated that the concept “people” changes its name and connotative colouring in accordance with the change of the ideological position of the subject of speech. Besides, the Russian intellectuals’ assessments of the moral qualities of the Russian people are tinged with a negative axiological asymmetry which can have two explanations: the Russians as no other people are inclined to self-criticism; Russian authors of aphorisms about the Russian people do not consider themselves to be part of the nation.

Key words


verbalization, connotative colouring, axiological asymmetry, people, aphorism, subject positioning
