Атрибутивные компоненты сочетаний типа бизнес-план: аналитические прилагательные?

Горбов А. А.
The article explores the issue of grammatical description of indeclinable attributive premodifiers in nominal expressions such as бизнес-план, шоу-бизнес, фитнес-зал where attributive elements formally coincide with nouns borrowed from English. The paper challenges the viewpoint according to which all such elements have identical properties and form a separate word class of “analytical adjectives”. The analysis shows that these premodifiers form two groups, one of which contains parts of compound words and the other consists of autonomous nouns used appositively to head nouns. It is thus proved that the linguistic units under survey are not adjectives; besides, compounding being the more productive pattern, there is hardly any connection with analytic trends in the Russian morphosyntax.
