Objective. The objective of the article is to conduct a contextual linguostylistic analysis of the mono- and syno-slangisms of the British English language range and slang borrowings from the American area in comparison with literary English via the examples of a modern English "working" novel. Methods. The main scientific results are obtained applying a set of general scientific and special methods of research, namely: analysis and generalization of scientific and educational-methodical literature on the problems of the use, formation and translation of slangisms; theoretical generalization, analysis and synthesis; holistic and integral approaches to the study of linguistic phenomena; comparative, descriptive and analytical. Results. Conducted contextual linguostylistic analysis of mono- and syno-slangisms testifies to the presence of a large number of slang words in the works of modern English "working" novelists, as well as to the slang level of Americanism and the tendency of democratization of English colloquial language due to non-literary stylistic expression. The authors note that many slang words, as a result of their frequent use in live spoken language, have become classified and entrenched in literary vocabulary; One of the reasons that prepared the ground for the transition of some slangisms to literary language was the fact that they did not have synonyms in literary English (monolingualisms, of course). The analysis reveals that the greatest number of synonyms are those objects and phenomena that play an important role for native speakers; borrowed American slangism, because of its popularity, is being supplanted by the use of purely British slang words. The authors consider various ways of forming slangisms and find out that the greatest difficulties in reading the works of contemporary English "working" novelists is the widespread use by authors of deviations from the literary norm, both phonetic and grammatical.
