Оформление прямого дополнения в финно-угорских языках: между предикацией и дискурсом

Сердобольская Н. В., Толдова С. Ю.

The work is devoted to the differential object marking in some of the Finno-Ugric languages, namely in Komi-Zyryan, Besrmyan dialect of the Udmurt language, Moksha-Mordvin language. In the previous works the analysis of the differential object marking phenomenon was limited to the analysis of a sentence, in spite of the fact, that main factors that triggers encoding such as referential properties of a DO and its information status are discourse-motivated factors. In present work we suggest quite different approach. We suggest to treat the different modes of DO encoding as different devices in the referential choice. Thus, the model is based on the referential choice framework. We argue that the discourse status of the DO referent (mental entity) such as protagonist, topic etc. or a non-salient entity can affect the DO encoding choice and overrides the within-sentence constraints. This factor works for all the analysed languages.
