Тенденции развития вариативности в согласовании сказуемого с подлежащим, включающим числительное "несколько"

С. 99-103.

The paper deals with the development of predicate agreement with the quantifier phrase, containing "neskolko", during 18-21 centuries. Analyzing the data of the National Russian lcorpus and the results of statistic research of the 60-70s, as well as debating with the conception proposed by the author's team included M. Krasovitsky, G.Corbett and others, the author offers an explanation for the inconsistency fluctuations of the predicate in a number observed in expressions  with "neskolko". Given the influence of speech sphere on a predicate number choice, the author concludes that the expressions, including "neskolko" demonstrates a clear trend to the choice of a plural predicate agreement.
