Abstract

The article is devoted to the analysis of the peculiarities of English language origin intertextemes use in Internet texts. Today, the intertextuality of Internet texts and genres has not been sufficiently researched. Approaches to the basic concepts of Internet linguistics, such as intertextuality, intertexteme, Internet communication, Internet linguistics and Internet genre are considered. A factual base of research that numbers 70 different intertextemes was created by means of the Alphateka content analysis system. Lingual material is analyzed by the most frequent markers of intertextuality (as they say in England; as they say in America; as English say; as Americans say; as the American... says; as the American... said; as British say; as they say in English etc). and their components, by authorship (R. Emerson, W. Churchill, L. Button, E. Hemingway, M. Thatcher, M. Monroe etc)., by the type of intertextemes (phraseologism, aphorism etc). and by input method in the text (they are conveyed in the original language, translated and transliterated). According to preliminary data, the most frequent intertexteme used in Internet texts is the statement to make someone’s day. It is concluded that Internet users mostly resort to citation when there is no Ukrainian equivalent or it is unknown to them; intertextemes occur in Ukrainian Internet texts both in the original language and in translation; authors and contributors can use transliterated units, which mostly give the text an ironic or humorous tone and enhance its emotionality. A single example of attributing authorship of an expression to another person has been revealed. The prospect of further researches is to identify and analyze the intertextemes transformations in Internet texts.
