About some Synonymical Nouns in the Poetries of Farzona and Marina Tsvetayeva


Mamajanova Kh.K.


Synonyms and synonymical relations in the creations of the great Russian poetess Marina Tsvetayeva and the well-known Tajik poetess Farzona are ones of scantily studied aspects of modern linguistics. Proceeding from a scrupulous analysis of poetical fragments from Tsvetayeva`s and Farzona`s works containing synonyms the author elicits both proximity and distinction in their poetical styles in so far as synonyms are concerned. In particular, that fact is worth attention that both poetesses use not only usual synonyms, but synonymical pairs either. The proximity of their works lies not only in morphological and grammatical aspects, but in semantic plane either, it refers to the cases when synonymical words coincide in their meanings. The usage of synonyms by the poetesses elevates an expressiveness of their creations, affords to avoid dullness of language; these two women-of-letters are singled out as bright stars in the firmament of contemporary poetry.
