Abstract

The article deals with the secondary predication in Modern English. The main idea of the article is the examination of the peculiarities of semi-predicative constructions, the analysis of the syntactical nature of them and their peculiar use. It is defined that the primary predication is found in predicative relations and marks the character of the relation between the thought and the reality. It revealed the secondary predication in the form of the predicative connection which has its own peculiar means of expression: members of the sentence, absolute constructions, complex members of the sentence. It is confirmed that the frequent use of constructions of the secondary predication is the specific feature of syntax and because of them it assumes laconism and compression on the syntactic level.
