Influence of negative particles in the syntactic structure of conditional statements on the effectiveness of the actualization of the semantic content



The research is based on general theoretical hypothesis, i.e. the effectiveness of mental operations and actions that ensure the actualization and transformation of semantic content depends on the syntactic organization of the linguistic means in the composition of grammatical propositions. The main purpose of the study was to establish regularities of the influence of conditional (implicative) proposition on the effectiveness of actualization of semantic content in the world image of a subject, depending on: a) the position of the negative particle in a conditional proposition; b) the order of simple sentences that form a conditional relationship, and c) initial truth or falsity of the content of the premise-condition (antecedent).
