The impersonal structures in Modem English are usually one member sentences while in Bulgarian they are two-member sentences. To the structural variety of the impersonal forms in Modern Bulgarian corresponds mainly one structural type in English, Subject + Verb, in which the position of the subject is usually filled by it. The structural difference between the two languages is connected not only with the opposition one-member, two-member sentences but also with the different relations of the Bulgarian predicate to the secondary parts of the sentence. The paper offers a contrastive analysis of the impersonal constructions in the two languages.
