Abstract:The aim of this study is to underline the semantic diversity of linguistic conversion, mainly nominalization, in Emil Cioran’s Amurgul gândurilor. The focus will be laid on two word classes: adjectives and adverbs.
The adjectives used in nominal position vary from negative derivations either borrowed or created in Romanian by use of prefixes to chromatic adjectives or adjectives denoting aesthetical categories. Adverbs which become nouns include circumstances like manner, place or time.
Nominalization is generally achieved by assigning the definite or indefinite article or by attracting a determiner (adjective, noun or clause).
Key words:semantic diversity, nominalization, negative derivation, adjective, adverb
Language: English
