Abstract

The article considers contrasting approaches to defining the essence of categories of negation and opposition caused primarily by the many-sidedness of this linguistic phenomenon. The article analyzes linguistic concepts of these categories, their interaction with other categories such as predicativity, modality, prosodics, evaluation etc. There is no doubt that negation and opposition have a certain connection with the said categories, but they also have certain specific features that make up their immanent essence.

Quite often, the boundaries of considering the categories of negation and opposition turn out to be narrower, and scientists try to differentiate them as categories of notion and categories of language. However, we believe that negation and opposition are complicated phenomena and in no case are they peripheral, so their delimiting and modifying influence is relevant at all levels of the language structure, to a certain degree.
