The article is devoted to the study of peculiarities of semantics modeling of expressively labeled lexical units, which contain in their meaning plans a dominant intensively parametric component. The study was based on the language material of "Eneida" of Ivan Kotliarevskyi. The writer made a great progress in the development of Ukrainian Literature. The author presented the live broadcast of the Ukrainians. Besides, Ivan Petrovych Kotliarevskyi showed the skills in objectification of internal intentions, in reproduction of the Ukrainian mentality. The writer verbally realized the Ukrainian worldview, linguistic thinking, the elements of culture and spirituality of the Ukrainian nation. Linguostylistic analysis of the "Eneida" reveals, that the semantic structure of the textual expressives is based on intensively parametric connotation. The expressive fund of the
analyzed poem by I. P. Kotlyarevskyi is the basis of linguistic organization and design of the work, a representative of the author’s ideas, a content-forming tool, material for the formation of artistic figures, a figurative means of characters descriptions. The expressive semantics of the burlesque-travesty poem are motivated by external markers, in particular, morpheme-derivative means, and to a greater extent - by internal
motivators, the most productive of them are the following components: expressive basis, internal form, secondary nomination, associative values, compressive formations.
