Egocentricals are lexemes, grammatical categories (particularly the grammatical renditions of aspect, verbal gender, tense and mood) and syntactic structures, the semantics of which anticipates the implied speaker as a participant in the situation being described. The aim of this study is to define the lexical egocentricals in Slovak and outline the semantic-pragmatic roles of the speaker roles in the narrative statements. We distinguish between the semantic (receptor) and communicative (speaker) role, i.e. perspective and focalization, as an essential starting point for understanding egocentricals. We also distinguish between the canonical and non-canonical communication situation, i.e. primary and secondary egocentricals. We present a set of nine semantic-pragmatic roles, in which the egocentricals act from the pragmatic perspective as modifiers of statements and contribute to the implementation of the communication intentions of the speaker.
