Among language functions a special role is played by the linguocreative function, which is brought to life by the corresponding linguocreative thinking and realised through generation of innovative speech and thoughts. Selection of implementators of the linguocreative function is determined by the work of language, text and communication factors. Linguocreative function deals with revaluation of former social and linguistic experience, registered explicitly and implicitly. Linguocreative function verbalizers are of dual nature, they are traditional and nonce units. Linguistic units, limited and specific in their number are omnipotent in the power to verbalize the experience of people.
