Abstract. The aim of this work is to identify the syntactic features of the coronavirus discourse formed as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak at the beginning of 2020. The study was carried out by the material of texts extracted from the Russian newspapers over the past two years (2020-2021). The scientific novelty of the work lies in the fact that the components of the syntactic arsenal of this discourse are carefully analysed: simple and complex sentences with different structure, purpose of utterance and intonation, as well as various means of expression. The total array of considered syntactic constructions has 1000 sentences. As a result, it is shown that the texts of this discourse include elements of bookish and colloquial syntax. A slight difference in the percentage of simple and complex sentences, due to linguistic and extralinguistic factors, has been revealed. There is a tendency to complicate simple sentences. Complex sentences with conditional clauses and polynomial complex sentences were the most productive among complex sentences. A wide use of various kinds of interrogative and imperative sentences has been found. It is proved that special syntactic techniques of expressiveness are used to influence the addressee; parcellation, inversion and syntactic parallelism have a high frequency.
