MAIN TRENDS OF PHRASEOLOGY DEVELOPMENT IN THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINUUM OF MODERN ENGLISH

Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of modern trends in development of phraseological units belonging to different layers of spoken American and Canadian English. Having for their main source slang and colloquialisms, new phrases are marked by a high degree of anthropocentricity as their thematic sphere is restricted by human environment, man’s physical state, behaviour, morals. Structurally the given units are predominantly binominal word combinations, whose one or two centres possess an anthropocentric meaning.
