The current study addresses the peculiarities of expressing the linguistic category of emotivity on the basis of the English literary works of the XIX c. and XXI c. written by the female authors. The analysis focuses on the syntactic expressive means, particularly, exclamatory sentences, repetitions and partial constructions. The conducted research suggests that the impact of the latter leads to better perception of an emotionally coloured certain life situation that is depicted by a narrator with the help of the corresponding language means. The authors aim to explore the samples of the syntactic expressive means from the literary works under investigation and to reveal the correlation between the syntactic structure and the emotivity of the text.
