The study examines tense variation in complement and subject clauses subordinate to and co-temporal with matrix past tense verbs in Russian. The semantics of the matrix verb is commonly named as one of the major factors that govern tense choice in complement and subject clauses: verbs of speech are said to exclusively license present tense ...

In my paper, I will analyze a special feature of clausal complements in the Bzhedug dialect of Adyghe, a polysynthetic language of the West Caucasian family. While in many languages, clausal complements cannot trigger verbal agreement, in Adyghe, the matrix verb can bear plural agreement with a clausal complements, along with the default singular agreement. If there is a ...

In the article, I focus on tense marking in Russian constructions with predicatives, such as xolodno ‘(it is) cold’ and ploxo ‘(it is) bad’. Statistical data from the Russian National Corpus show that the frequency of past tense forms (e.g., combinations with the form bylo) is much greater for some predicatives than for others. This difference results both from ...

The present article addresses a special use of the Russian locative pronoun tam: the use represented in examples like ‘I talked to her — no understanding of the situation there’. In those contexts, tam refers to a participant (usually animate), rather than a location. After a brief sketch of other uses, I describe the rules and restrictions on the ...

The article continues the study of the Passio S. Susannae (BHL 7937) as a text of the 5th or 6th cent. AD that was originally composed in a language characterized by many departures from Classical Latin. Some of the ‘non-classical’ linguistic features connected with syntax that can be indentified in the manuscripts of the Passio ...

The analogues of tense interpretation in Russian embedded clauses: absolute vs. relative modality, absolute vs. relative aspect
, Компьютерная лингвистика и интеллектуальные технологии 2020 Vol. дополнительный том No. 19 (26) P. 1065-1077
The paper adresses parallels between tense, aspect and modality marking in Russian embedded clauses. It is widely known that tense forms of embedded verbs can be interpreted relatively or absolutely, and in some cases, the relative and absolute use seem to be in free variation. It turns out that the interpretation of modality and aspect ...

e spread of the complementation construction o tom, čto in non-standard Russian in recent decades has been attested in previous work. It has been established that the construction has a wide distribution and can replace not only ordinary complement clauses introduced by the complementizer čto (so-called čto-clauses), cf. podtverždat’ o tom, čto + p ‘con ...

Weak grammatical violations, i.e. violations that result in intermediate unacceptability, pose challenges for a formal description of grammar since it remains undecided whether they are the result of a true grammatical constraint or merely an epiphenomenal consequence of processing complexity. Neither informal grammaticality judgements nor corpus data alone can reveal finegrained distinctions that may be ...

The article focuses on the ordering of arguments in Russian. The central class of phenomena is represented by verbs having a clausal complement that has a fixed position with respect to other arguments and the matrix verb. I mostly analyze verbs like "ščitat’" ‘consider’, "rassmatrivat’ kak" ‘regard as’, "trebovat’" ‘request, require’, which require the clausal complement to be situated ...

Монография посвящена русским конструкциям с сентенциальными актантами (придаточными, которые занимают место актанта главного глагола). Автор уточняет существующие описания типов подчинительных конструкций со "что" ("Я знаю, что он приехал"), инфинитивом ("Я забыл закрыть дверь") и др. Однако главная задача книги – поставить новые вопросы и описать новые явления: среди них – конструкции с дублированием в придаточном формы главного глагола ("Начать ...

The article aims to test the syntactic status of sentential arguments in constructions with predicatives in Russian, such as "Mne interesno, kak on eto sdelal" 'I wonder (it is interesting to me) how he did this'. The conclusion is that, though there are few tests which unequivocally show the subject status of all sentential arguments ...

The paper considers the use of infinitives and subjunctive forms as modal patterns of indirect speech attested in Russian Chronicles of the XI—XVI centuries. In early texts, an infinitive in a subordinate clause describes either a speech act that must be put into practice or a situation destined to happen. Subjunctive forms are used only ...

This paper addresses the system of purpose clauses in Hill Mari. It focuses on the conditions licensing omission of infinitival purpose clause subjects. Basically, these emerge where such subjects corefer to the matrix subject or indirect object. In cases of embedded predicate’s unaccusativity and direct object coreference, however, the subordinate subject can be omitted. Since this ...

The paper aims to further advance the line of research where all uses of the Russian subordinator poka are given a unified semantics, and all constructions involving it are assumed to be fully compositional. I focus on several further issues, viz. whether it is simultaneity or precedence that lies in the core of the meaning ...

The paper presents a tentative overview of pronouns in Ginyanga, an understudied Kwa language spoken in Togo and Ghana; in particular, personal pronouns, reflexive pronouns, demonstratives and quantifiers. There are no subject pronouns in Ginyanga. We define two personal pronoun series with a designated pronoun for each noun class: basic (emphatic and possessive) and object. ...

On tense and irrealis marking in triclausal constructions (and what distinguishes them from biclausal constructions)
, Linguistics 2018 Vol. 56 No. 1 P. 163-206
In this article, I consider Russian triclausal constructions (complex sentences including three clauses, one main and two dependent). More specifically, I analyze constructions where C1 (the main clause) embeds C2 (an embedded clause), while C2 in turn embeds C3. In the paper, I mainly concentrate on sentences where C2 is a clause with an unreal ...

The article suggests a way of modelling the linear position of appellatives in Russian. Under the name «appellatives» are combined the units with similar functions and syntactic properties, namely truncated vocative forms and discursive markers of the type «slushaj» (lit. ‘listen-Imp.2P’). The model assumes distinction between accented and non-accented uses in three positions (initial, middle, ...

The paper discusses distributional restrictions on the realization of sentential complement as a čto-clause observed in non-agentive uses of verbs of speech act. It is shown that these restrictions apply only when the sentential complement is in the oblique position and that they are related to the argument structure of the predicate (the presence of attitude ...

The article focuses on complement clauses of nominalizations (deverbal and deadjectival nouns) in Russian. It is proposed that several parameters, such as semantic role, the opposition of proper argument vs. modifier, the opposition of complex event vs. result nominals are necessary to account for the distribution of nouns that take vs. do not take complement clauses, and neither of them ...

The paper tests the hypothesis of positional similarity between truncated vocative forms (TVFs) like mam, pap, Tan’ (instead of, respectively, mama ‘mom’, papa ‘dad’, Tanya) and discourse markers (DMs) of the type “slushay”, “poslushay” (lit. ‘listen.2.Imp’). The hypothesis is based on the functional similarity of these expressions that belong to a wide category of parentheticals and ...

Though the Russian infinitive is a non-finite form, it is frequently used independently, with or without the subjunctive particle by. This paper is an attempt to answer the question whether independent infinitival constructions should be considered as a result of insubordination (the term by Nicholas Evans). Basing on the data from Russian National Corpus, two ...

The converb of this verb (manən) is desemantisized, it loses the syntactic properties of the verb of speech and shifts to the category of subordinators. Successive grammaticalization steps of this marker can be observed in Modern ...
