Languages of publication
The article presents the analysis of the peculiar use of Biblicisms of diff erent types in T. Shevchenko’s letters and diaries. As the result, the author concludes that biblicity is one of the major features of the diary and epistolary genres of the poet. It has been shown that T. Shevchenko frequently uses lexical Biblicisms both in the direct and in the metaphoric meanings enriching their semantics. T. Shevchenko’s ego-texts usually contain Biblicisms that verbalize the theme block “person”, in particular, for self-portraying or depicting other people’s behavior, traits of character, mental and physical state. They are the means of creating expressive emphasis in the text as they are used in diff erent tropes and fi gures as well as in language play. The feature of Kobzar’s letters and diaries proves the hypothesis about the close connection of language and religion, religious and language mapping of the world, the immortality of the Holy Scripture that is a constant source of lingual creativity of prominent language personality, representing their intimate sphere of work.
