The negative pronoun most common functions are dealt with contrastively and from a pragmatic point of view. Those stylistically significant types of use have been analysed in which the pronouns function not as substitutes but as exponents of the speaker’s emotional and expressive attitude towards the object of speech. These pronouns may be divided into three groups in terms of the function expressed: a) pronouns actualizing the negative element in general negative sentences; b) pronouns, exponents of subjective assessment; c) pronouns functioning as abstract notions based on the negative component of their meaning. The similarities and differences between the Russian and Bulgarian pronouns from the adopted point of view are thrown into relief.
