Abstract

Functions of “words-phantoms” in authoritarian propagandistic discourse and specificity of their usage in messages of Ukrainian authorities have been analyzed in the article. It has been demonstrated on examples of comparative analysis of the Soviet Agitation and Propaganda Department and genres of official appeals of President of Ukraine that the domination of such lexical means of propagandistic influence makes the authority discourse deprived of sense and ruins communication between authorities and people.
