Book

Уступительность: механизмы образования и взаимодействия сложных значений в языке

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.
