1. Nominative phraseological units are represented by word-groups, including the ones with one meaningful word, and coordina-tive phrases of the type wear and tear, well and good.
The first class also includes word-groups with a predicative struc-ture, such as as the crow flies, and, also, predicative phrases of the type see how the land lies, ships that pass in the night.
2. Nominative-communicative phraseological units include word-groups of the type to break the ice — the ice is broken, that is, verbal word-groups which are transformed into a sentence when the verb is used in the Passive Voice.
3. Phraseological units which are neither nominative nor commu-nicative include interjectional word-groups.
4. Communicative phraseological units are represented by prov-erbs and sayings.
These four classes are divided into sub-groups according to the type of structure of the phraseological unit. The sub-groups include further rubrics representing types of structural-semantic meanings according to the kind of relations between the constituents and to either full or partial transference of meaning.
The classification system includes a considerable number of sub-types and gradations and objectively reflects the wealth of types of phraseological units existing in the language. It is based on truly sci-entific and modern criteria and represents an earnest attempt to take into account all the relevant aspects of phraseological units and com-bine them within the borders of one classification system.
