Absract: The article deals with petitionary, penitential, thanksgiving and soliciting prayers found in the narrative and in the direct speech fragments of the original text of The Tale of Bygone Years. The characteristic features of the majority of the listed prayers are accounted for (the traditional traits, a frequent use of quotations and clichés, indication of the private or public nature, an intimate or open character of a prayer, its duration and regularity, its accompanying “external movements”). The linguistic patterns, setting off the prayer as a specific speech genre, are determined. We have registered two ways in which the prayers were chiefly shaped, depending on the lack or presence of the objectivization of the modality of the obligation (direct and indirect prayers).
Keywords: The Tale of Bygone Years, chronicle, speech genres, prayer.
