Деепричастные клаузы, неканонические с точки зрения классической грамматики
The paper discusses the findings of the corpus study conducted on the basis of the Main corpus of the Russian National Corpus. This study is viewed as a continuation of the experimental study reported in Puzhaeva (2016), Puzhaeva and Zevakhina (2018). The study confirmed the following experimentally established fact: preposed converbial clauses are significantly more typical of sentences with non-canonical control than postposed converbial clauses. Moreover, the amount of sentences with non-canonical control has significantly increased from the 18th century on.
