Henry Fielding’s linguistic games

  • T. N. Potnitseva


The article focuses on trhe playful character of Fielding’s world perception and narrative manner in its polysemanticity and polyfuctionality. The main object of the analysis is not quite fictional work of the author – “A Modern Glossary” (1752) which embodies in itself Fielding’s ironical-satirical response both to the purely linguistic phenomenon – an obvious necessity to normalize the literary English language and to the social-cultural problems reflected in the language. That concerns the topical issues of vagueness and relativity of social “norms” and “rules”.
