Abstract


The purpose of this article is to study the verbalization of the main spectral colors in the texts of Ukrainian charms. In order to achieve the goal, the following tasks must be realized: 1- To determine the emotional and estimated semantics of red, blue, green, yellow colors and the function performed by the above-mentioned color titles to ensure pragmatics of charms. 2- To find out the direct and associative values of the main spectral colors in the texts of Ukrainian charms. 3- To discover the most common morphological category of color titles. It is established that the titles of the main spectral colors in the charming texts are usually filled with positive emotional-estimated semantics, but sometimes they are able to acquire other semantic shades of contradictory significance. As a result, the adjective is defined as the most common morphological category of color titles. The direct and associative values of the main spectral colors in the texts of Ukrainian charms are found. In conclusion, the color epithets of red, blue, green, yellow are capable of performing an emotional and expressive function, which contribute to the pragmatic effect of charms.
