Description One of the dominant topics in text linguistics is the study of the peculiarities of the language and style of the writer. Particular interest arises while their investigation in the works of the most famous masters of the word, to whom Nikolai Gogol belongs. The means of individualization of the author’s manner, the author’s lexicostatistics are linguistic means of secondary nomination. Among them particularly productive are metonymy and synecdoche as elements of linguistic thinking and author’s individual worldview. Despite the sufficiently extensive study of metonymy and synecdoche in various aspects, the peculiarities of the functioning of the analyzed tools in discourse, artistic text, including Gogol, are not fully understood. The mechanism of the trope occurrence has not been disclosed. Their functions in Gogol’s texts have not been analyzed. Attempt to fill these gaps makes our research relevant. The article describes the process of formation of these tropes. Structural-semantic models of metonymy in Nikolai Gogol’s works of different years are distinguished. Emphasis isplaced on their subject-specific character in the early work of the writer, offering the idea of the man’s callous nature in the contemporary world of those times. It is proved that the metonymy and synecdoche of writer’s mature years, formed on the basis of the samemodels, act in a new function for them - the trope-stylistic technique which is simultaneously the outgrowing the boundaries of Gogol’s creativity symbol in a broader sense. The hypothesis has been put forward that the synthesis of these expressive means forms an eschatological model of the world, which, according to M. Gogol, is engulfed in universalchaos and the absurdity of existence.
В статье представлены метонимия и синекдоха как тропы и стилистические приемы в идиостиле Николая Гоголя. Выяснен механизм их тропообразования. Продемонстрирована предметно-конкретная семантика различных моделей в раннем гоголевском творчестве. Прослеженыособенности функционирования анализируемых тропов-стилистических приемов в роли символов в текстах зрелых лет. Выдвинута и доказана гипотеза о синтезе метонимии и синекдохи как основы эсхатологической модели мира писателя, охваченной вселенским хаосом и абсурдностьюбытия.
