IMPLIED LANGUAGE MEANS AND THEIR ROLE IN DEVELOPMENT OF THE TEXT PLOT
Some common and specific features of three linguistic phenomena: presupposition, implication and implied inner text – are considered in the paper. It is stated that presuppositions carry objective information and are related to the theme from the viewpoint of the functional sentence perspective. No new information, objective or subjective, is included in presuppositions. In this aspect they are redundant. Implications, on the contrary, contain a concealed additional meaning and contribute to extending and deepening the text plot. Implications are connected with subjective information and can be interpreted differently. As distinct from implications an implied inner text is realised not only on the basis of a microtext but also on that of a macrotext. Together with extending and deepening the plot an implied inner text can change the meaning of language elements that are presented explicitly.
