Abstract. The article puts forth argumentation that fully conforms with the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis on linguistic relativity according to which the structure of a language reflects not only peculiar features of some culture but also determines the general worldview (its conceptualization). Any changes of one part influence others, thus defining the dynamic character of the Russian worldview and its conceptualization in the language and signs of the present-day communication. The dynamics of the Russian reality actualizes the new worldview aspects which require the emergence of corresponding expression means and communicative techniques. The language signs which appear in speech as well as the dominating tendencies of their use, form the worldview of the modern society thus eliciting the interrelation of words and conciousness. The linguistic analysis of language units and samples of speech made it evident that the dynamic processes are associated with: language changes caused by new life reality; actual reoccurrence of language signs; spiral development of the language and its usage in speech; stretching semantics; creative enhancement; distortion and exposure in the modern Russian and its speech realizations. Alterations and the latest development in a semantic layer of already existing or newly arisen discourse are demonstrated with samples of Russian lexis and recent communicative practice.

Key words: dynamics of language, linguistic sign, worldview, wordplay, alterating communication, language and speech norm, emotional impact.
