The article discusses the indirect motivation associated with the process of word formation, reflecting the functional importance of derivatives marked by the expressive connotation. The description of word formation specificity with regard to figurative motivation of nouns relating to the thematic group ‘man’ is a topical subject of derivation research connected with the study of the dynamics of the derivation figurative resource and folk life culture development. The purpose of this paper is to identify the dynamic processes realized in the action of word formation mechanism included in the forecasting of trends in the development of the potential word formation and its peculiarities for certain models and bearing native cultural identity in language consciousness and linguistic traditions, sometimes manifested through the inner form of the word, used in figurative motivation description. The article analyzes the unique nature of connotations of figurative words, which reveals the types of figurative word-formation motivation and forms the modern idea of the problem of indirect (figurative) motivation of derivatives (derivative words). Defining the functional specificity of derivatives with figurative motivation, it is important to establish and explain the semantic derivation and the problem of indirect motivation of derivatives. Unlike direct naming units indirect secondary nominations under analysis represented by derivational motivated words (of different types of motivation) have been registered in the words of spoken language, including those with connotations. The peculiarity of representation of the internal derivation form in defining dictionaries records functional difference and pragmatic features in the meanings of derivative words with figurative motivation.
