Грамматическая полисемия сквозь призму лексики: инструменталис в бесленеевском диалекте кабардино-черкесского языка
The paper discusses the main features of Tundra Nenets grammar,which is in many respects quite peculiar from a cross-linguistic perspective. Special attentionis paid to the new book by Irina Nikolaeva «A Grammar of Tundra Nenets» (De Gruyter Mouton, 2014) uncovering a great deal of hitherto virtually unexamined aspects of Tundra Nenets syntax. Careful consideration is given to the weak and strong points of the description as well as its important role in the context of Samoyedic studies.
The volume includes papers presented at the international symposium "Adyghe Philology".
This work deals with the concepts that the speakers of the Ulyap variety of the Besleney dialect of the Kabardian language (Circassian<Northwest Caucasian) have about their language. Aul Ulyap is located in the Republic Adygea, and thus, all speakers of the Ulyap variety study Adyghe and Russian in school. Moreover, the sociolinguistic situation is complicated by the fact that speakers of both Adyghe and Kabardian languages consider themselves a single people that is called in both languages Adyg (not to be confused with adygehabze, the name for the Adyghe language).
The book addresses the issue of concessives in Russian and analyzes the semantics of Russian concessive expressions. The first chapter explicates the core meaning of all Russian concessives. It is based on the simpler senses of condition and negation. The second chapter defines the main modifications of the core meaning along the lines of semantic conversion and actantial addition, as well as semantic shifts concerning the senses of probability, desirability and degree. The third chapter describes the meanings of more than sixty cocessive items in Russian. The fourth chapter provides corpus analysis of the Russian concessive constructions, in particular, their semantic and combinatorial properties. The fifth and the sixth chapters consider concession among similar lexico-grammatical meanings. The seventh chapter presents lexicographic descriptions of concessives in the Active dictionary of Russian.
