Традиционная классификация уральских языков предполагает последовательное бинарное ветвление сначала на самодийские и финно-угорские языки, затем финно-угорских – на угорские и финно-пермские, затем финно-пермских – на пермские и финно-волжские, и, наконец, финно-волжских – на волжские и финно-саамские. Признание за промежуточными узлами в этом дереве генетического статуса (т.е. наличия соответствующих праязыков) предполагает, что эти праязыки должны были ...

The value of "triangulation" in determining phylogenetic relationship: on the areal and genetic connections of the Berta languages
, Language in Africa 2022 Vol. 3 No. 2 P. 352-367
In this paper, I argue against a recent attempt at re-classifying the small group of Berta languages, spoken in Ethiopia, as being closely related to the geographically adjacent East Jebel group, based on numerous lexical similarities between the two taxa. It is suggested that the best method to determine if these similarities are due to ...

Книга, написанная в жанре диалога с представителями Московской школы ком- паративистики, представляет собой доступное изложение теоретических и методо- логических оснований, на которых оказывается возможной реконструкция древних праязыков, к которым восходит современное языковое разнообразие. Основная цель издания — доходчиво объяснить, чем реконструкция глубоких праязыковых состояний, таких как праностратический или прасино-кавказский, отличается от реконструкции более мелких праязыков, ...

This paper discusses a typologically unusual relativization strategy attested in several Southeastern Mande languages. In this construction, the relativized noun phrase appears in its own non-reduced clause and is referred to by a pronoun in the main clause, as in constructions with correlative clauses (literally, " That man invited us, I am writing to him" ...

This article explores the way in which loanwords become incorporated into a recipient language. It concentrates on the interim period, the time between the borrowing of a new word from a donor language and its incorporation into a recipient language. During this period the new word still retains some of its “foreignness”, its associations with ...

The problem of an uncharacteristic frequency of causative constructions lassen+infinitive in 15th-century German texts about Vlad III Dracula
, , PONTE 2019 Vol. 75 No. 3/1 P. 43-51
The 15th-century German texts about Vlad III Dracula are both the result and the instrument of a political campaign. The connection between the original text and its further genre modifications can be traced through their shared features in vocabulary and grammatical constructions. A notable feature of the entire genre paradigm of data is the frequency ...

Building Societies on Outer Islands: Sociopolitical Institutions and Their Names in Polynesian Outliers
, , in : The Evolution of Social Institutions: Interdisciplinary Perspectives. : Springer, 2020. Ch. 27. P. 627-656.
Polynesian Outliers represent several independent migrations from Western Polynesia into Melanesia and Micronesia, which developed in significant isolation under the pressure of severe ecological constraints. Their typical size is a few hundred persons and it is well documented that some reduced to less than twenty persons in the nineteenth century. Surprisingly, these societies were complex, ...

Previous electrophysiological studies that have examined temporal agreement violations in (Indo-European) languages that use grammatical affixes to mark time reference, have found a Left Anterior Negativity (LAN) and/or P600 ERP components, reflecting morpho-syntactic and syntactic processing, respectively. The current study investigates the electrophysiological processing of temporal relations in an African language (Akan) that uses grammatical ...

The paper discusses V. V.

Etymological comparanda for V. V. Tishin’s Bulghar Turkic forms in runic epigraphy are drawn from the Chuvash language as the only living ...

In Proto-Aramaic, the passive of transitive verbs belonging to all three principal stems—G, D and C—was formed internally. Some verbs of the G- and D-stems also possessed detransitive derivatives. Transitive verbs of the G-, D- and C-stems lost their internal passives early on, and the passives of G- and D-verbs were encoded by their respective ...

The Difficulties of Reconstructing the Cultural Lexicon for a Macrofamily-Level ProtoLanguage (Based on the Afrasian Example)
, Etnograficeskoe Obozrenie 2021 No. 4 P. 43-50
The paper offers a critical analysis of several Afrasian etymologies with presumably “military” semantics, put forward by Alexander Militarev. The conclusion is that these etymologies typically suffer from multiple problems, such as lack of proper attention to the historical typology of semantic shifts and insufficient consideration for the distribution of potential reflexes in daughter languages. ...

This paper analyses a number of morphophonological alternations in the Yukaghir languages with the aim of the internal reconstruction of pre-Proto-Yukaghir. The main focus is on the simplification of complex consonant clusters arising on morphological boundaries between consonant-final root allomorphs and derivational suffixes. The paper also contains a new reconstruction of Proto-Yukaghir and pre-Proto- Yukaghir ...

The need to develop tools for historical and regional variations is becoming more urgent in natural language processing.

Background: The distribution of pronouns varies cross-linguistically. This distribution has led to conflicting results in studies that investigated pronoun resolution in agrammatic indviduals. In the investigation of pronominal resolution, the linguistic phenomenon of “resumption” is understudied in agrammatism. The construction of pronominal resolution in Akan presents the opportunity to thoroughly examine resumption. Aims: To start, the ...

In The Precursors of Proto-Indo-European some of the world’s leading experts in historical linguistics shed new light on two hypotheses about the prehistory of the Indo-European language family, the so-called Indo-Anatolian and Indo-Uralic hypotheses. The Indo-Anatolian hypothesis states that the Anatolian branch of the Indo-European family should be viewed as a sister language of ‘classical’ Proto-Indo-European, the ...
