MEANINGS, CONNOTATIONS AND CONNOTANTS

Abstract: 

The article explores the microsenses of the lexical units which are lesser than meanings and connotations, but relevant for the understanding of the whole text. The study of the lexical elements covers the material including separate segments of the historical novel «Jud Süss», written by the German speaking author L.Feuchtwanger, and the fact that the author belongs to two lingual cultures complicates the reproduction of the ethnic colouring of the original text. The use of the contrastive approach made it possible to iden-tify unknown microsenses, connotants, in the semantic elements similar in their outer form. 

Key words: 

microsense, bilingualism, ethnic, connotation, meaning, connotant.
