«Статья такая статья»: об одном типе редупликации в современном русском языке

Гилярова К. А.

The paper presents a semantic and pragmatic analysis of noun reduplication in colloquial Russian and the Internet language. We consider the repetition of a noun within the same prosodic unit separated by a particle “takoj” (‘such’) as in “statja takaja statja” (‘paper such a paper’). Drawing on a corpus of examples gathered from Internet texts we categorize the semantics of this reduplication pattern into six types: (1) prototype and connotation, (2) non-fitting a stereotype, (3) condescension and irony, (4) expression of emotions, (5) discourse topic and scene-setting topic (6) object nomination and ellipsis. Compared to the model “such X-X”, the model “X such X” more often points to the negative attitude. We also consider the syntactic structure of the given reduplication pattern.
