The article regards the semantics modal quasi-passive reflexive verbs, correlated with nоn-reflexive verbs with common roots, in the terms of contrasting semantic functions of verbal actants. The status of this type of reflexive has been determined. Modal quasi-passive verbs play an important role in the expression of a rare variant of subject-object relations; they are at the intersection of two semantic types. Such verbs have proportionally identical features, because the potential property of an object to accumulate a feature is combined with the ability to generate it. Modal quasi-passive are the main lexical-semantic variants (LSV) of a small number of verbs. They are distinguished in the semantic structure of verbs with the main decausative meaning, proper-inverse, absolute, autocausative and action. In the «Dictionary of the Ukrainian language» (DUL) [11], the definitions of the studied tokens are recorded inconsistently. Definitions of verbs that determine the different functions of actants in the position of the subject, often combined into one LSV. Modal quasi-passive verbs and decausatives were not separated as separate groups. Modal quasi-passive verbs are considered as shades of the main inchoative or absolute value. The article presents modal quasi-passive verbs that DUL does not provide, although the analysis of language material confirms the existence of such values. The basic object values that must be recorded by a dictionary article on modal quasi-passive are set. It is proved that the dictionary article of verbs such embalm, smear should contain six meanings. It is also proposed to introduce the analysis methods into other semantic groups reflexive verbs for the purpose of systematic study of the theory of reflexive verbs and their classification depending on the semantic function postfіx, the definition of reflexive in the common semantic category actant distribution semantics of the verb and the solution to the problem of standardization and destroying of typical formulas of dictionary interpretations.
