Abstract

Background. Questions of parts of speech, adverbs in particular, refer to fundamental problems of linguistics. Scholars study functional, conceptual, morphological aspect of adverbs, but not enough attention was paid to their application in professional texts on customs. Customs discourse and customs massmedia literature are of some interest for investigation due to intense development of this sphere. The recurrence on adverbs in professional periodicals in French accounts for then being called a specific feature of the discourse. The goals of the paper are to find out structural and semantic peculiarities of adverbial constructions, classify them, consider the interpretation aspect, state the role of adverbs in stylistics of the customs discourse.
Materials and methods. Material was taken from 14 French periodicals «OMD Actualités», a central organization of the International Customs Organization, published in two official languages: English and French. The basis for the investigation is comparative method, structural and semantic analysis of texts.
Results. We have studied structural, etymological aspects of adverbs, their semantics, valency, classifications. We have covered questions of translation into Russian with emphasis on expressions d´ores et déjà and dès maintenant.
Conclusions. The part – ofspeech semantics reflects activities in customs sphere. Semantic tracing is recurrent in translations. Synonymic adverbs and neologisms were found. The role of adverbs in forming the stylistics of the customs discourse is stated.

Key words

adverbs on -ment, adverbs or and d´ores et déjà, semantics, adverbs of manner, assessment of developments.
