Abstract. The relevance of the study is due to an increase in the frequency of the use of grammatical and lexical variant forms in the modern computer-mediated environment. The article is aimed at revealing the pragmalinguistic specificity of using diminutive constructions in social networks. By now in the discursive field of social networks a specific lexical layer has already been formed, in which whole subsystems of diminutive constructions are distinguished. In the discourse of social networks diminutive can perform one of three functions: positivising, pejorative and signifying.
Key words and phrases: социальная сеть, диминутив, диминутивность, дискурс, компьютерно-опосредованная коммуникация, social network, diminutive, diminutivity, discourse, computer-mediated communication.
