Cite item


The article deals with two types of syntactical constructions characterized by syncretic semantics: firstly, so-called secondary parts of sentence, secondly, existential-and-identifying type of sentences. It is shown that the syncretism in the domain of semantic units correlates with structural grammatical differences as well as in their communicative syntactic function.
