Abstract

This research paper is devoted to the study of the main affixal morphemes, which are used to express the functional semantic category of graduality in the adjectives of the Russian language. The article considers the category of graduality and its constituent parts (intensification and de-intensification) in Russian linguistics, and the semantic and derivational features of this category. In this work have been studied the affixal means of expressing the intensification and de-intensification of adjectives in Russian language. The analysis shows that affixal morphemes with the meaning of graduation in the Russian language are used most often to express intensification. The results of the analysis can be useful not only to students studying Russian, but also to researchers studying the relationship between functional semantic categories and word-formation means of expression of these categories.
