The article examines the semantic and morphological factors that are necessary for transposition of linguistic units of the class of adverbs in between-class-of-wordy semantic-syntactic category of introductory modal words and expressions. It was revealed that modalations in the Russian language subject to the adverbial forms that are included in different semantic and grammatical levels of proper-characterizing and circumstance-characterizing adverbs that allows the subject of the modus different-aspectual to estimate transmitted in the utterance (text) information. The attention is drawn to the fact that modulate the specified type is characterized reported in terms of a logical assessment of the situation (on the contrary, at the same time, in addition, etc.); categorical problematic and the accuracy of the information, its connection with the source (probably, like most, in my opinion, etc.); emotional and expressive coloring (really, sorry, suspicious, etc); language form of expression (in general, shorter, simpler, etc); the degree of generality of the situation, its relationship to time (sometimes, often, seldom, usually, etc).

Keywords: Russian language, grammar, transposition, modalation, background, class of words, adverb, modal.
