Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the evaluative potential of parenthesis, aposiopesis and partzyelyevantniye structures. The analysis is based on written texts of the Belarusian mass media. The article investigates semantic and structural relations between the main parts of supra-phrasal unit and its additional components, points out the role of the syntactic structures in speech acts of various types, draws conclusions on the possibility of using aposiopesis for implicit evaluative assertions, and finally, stresses the role of broad context in the process of defining the evaluative connotation of partzyelyevantniye and parenthetic structures.
