Abstract

The article deals with the peculiarities of the concessive semantic meaning realization in a complex sentence of concession with a concessive clause, which is introduced by subordinate and coordinate connectives (conjunctions / disjunctions) of various semantic orientation in modern American myths of science fiction and fantasy genre. The concept of concession or concessionality is considered as the main or the matrix one with implementation of the propositional context of pure concession as a semantically universal specialized or focused meaning; as well as conditional and contrastive concessive action as a semantically defocused meaning of concession in a subordinate concessive clause. The generalization of complex sentences’ structural types with semantically different adverbial concessive clauses of real or pure concession, universal or alternative conditional concession and contrastive concession is carried out. Concessive clauses are evidenced by the communicativefunctional orientation of the different concessive meanings actualization with the help of: universal concessive / conditional (correlative) conjunctions, alternative conditional (correlative) disjunctions and contrastive (correlative) conjunctions. Dominant or concessive-basic structural-semantic types with a universal concessive clause (UCC) and peripheral or concessive-equivalent structural-semantic types with a universal / an alternative conditional concessive clause (UCondCC / ACondCC) and a contrastive-concessive clause (ContrCC) are distinguished. Concessive-basic dominant types of complex sentences of concession are characterized according to the special main features of concession in the paradigm “specialized-universal concessive meaning – unambiguous sentence meaning – systematic nature of concessive action”. Concessive-equivalent peripheral types of complex sentences of concession are outlined accoding to the additional features of concession in the paradigm “defocused-universal concessive meaning as condition, alternative, contrast – ambiguous sentence content – irregularity of conjunctive / disjunctive forms and their implicit concessive features”. The syntactic function of concessive clauses as a part of the higher-level sentences is defined and justified as content adverbial subordinate clauses with conjunctions / disjunctions that affect the main verb and determine the meaning of the main clause. It is proved that adverbial clauses with the semantic content of universal pure concession overlap with the values of conditional and contrastive concession with the formation of universal-pure, universal-conditional, alternative-conditional, contrastive-conditional symbiosis of concessive action.
