AbstractThe article investigates functional sentence perspective (FSP) as a tool of implicit transfer of information about characters’ inner world and values in the free indirect discourse of ‘Dubliners’ by James Joyce. It is demonstrated that FSP significantly contributes to character’s image creation by emphasizing connotative-modal information, highlighting the elements important for the author’s implications understanding, presenting new information as given, as well as placing additional emphasis on sentence topics (themes in terms of FSP).
