Abstract

The article focuses on the means of realization of the evaluative component of the syntactic evaluative constructions at the text level. The analysis of the two short stories by W.S. Maugham shows that there are two ways of evaluative component actualization in the discourse. The first level is represented by direct and indirect appraisals towards the characters and the events of the story given by the author explicitly (through the narrator’s speech) or implicitly (through the author’s indirect evaluations) while the second one is the interaction of the two narrative methods made by the author and the narrator which leads to the unification of the two defined parties and the following integration of its evaluative component into the title itself.
