The article is devoted to the implicit representation of status and role groups in society on the material of impersonal sentences in the German language. The focus is set on the types of the implicit semantic subject, characterized by varying degrees of determination in context: indefinite-personal, generalizedpersonal and definite-personal semantic subject. The authors propose a tripartite paradigm of types of the implicit semantic subject on the basis of its social and role affiliation.
