One of the main goals of language teaching is the formation of a language personality. Language personality, in turn, is formed within the framework of language education. Knowledge of the language, the peculiarities of its structure, functioning, as well as knowledge of language norms in the field of phonetics, morphology, syntax and stylistics, and the ability to use them in the practice of oral and written speech communication, is an indicator that a language personality is formed. Knowledge of the syntactic foundations of the language, which implies the ability to build phrases and sentences correctly and the ability to perform oral and written communication on the basis of syntax, is the highest level of language education. The ability to express one's thoughts using complex sentences indicates an intellectually developed linguistic personality. Knowledge of the theoretical foundations of the native language enriches the native speaker and creates favorable prerequisites for mastering other languages. In the modern Mari language, there are two types of complex sentences: conjunctive and conjunctionless. Both types of sentences have a rich stylistic potential. If conjunctive complex sentences use different types of conjunctions for imagery and expressiveness, conjunctionless complex sentences have to resort for this purpose to such means as intonation, modal-temporal forms of verbs, ellipse, etc. In our study, we will focus on the stylistic expressiveness of conjunctionless complex sentences in comparison with conjunctive ones. Knowledge of the theoretical foundations of syntax and stylistics will indicate that the language personality is formed and has mastered language competencies, which is one of the main goals of language education.
Keywords: language and education; language personality, language competency; Mari language; syntax; stylistics; conjunctionless complex sentence; expressivity; emotionality.
