Book chapter

Къто, кето и кетъ: к морфологии неличных местоимений в древненовгородском диалекте

С. 89-97.

The article publishes a 13th century graffito-inscription from St. George’s Cathedral of the Yuriev Monastery in Novgorod. Besides the typical ‘asking for God’s help’, the author of the inscription ‘asks for God’s benevolence to whoever would read it’. A word-form ketъ which occurs in this phrase is interpreted as a direct phonetic continuation of Old Novgorodian keto ‘who’with a dialectal ending -е in Nominative Case, singular.
