Потенциальные единицы глагольного синтеза: свойства и возможности (на материале русских глаголов звучания)

Alternative Title

Potential Units of Verb Synthesis: Properties and Possibilities (On the Material of the Russian Verbs of Sound)


The aim of the study is to identify features of potential modifications and lacuna-forming modifiers involved in word-formation synthesis in the process of generating new verbs.

The scientific novelty of this study is in the differentiated representation of lexical-semantic and morphological means (verbal modifiers) that are capable, on the one hand, of synthesizing a desired meaning (verbal modification) and, on the other hand, of producing lexical gaps (lacunae).

As a result of analyzing the specific modifiers and modifications with respect to the lexical-semantic group of verbs of sound, the new products of synthesis (potential modifications) have been identified. The conditions for the appearance of lacunae and the role of the lacunae-forming modifiers are demonstrated.

Through a special project at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (USA) using the data from the Russian National Corpus, for the first time in lexicographic practice, novel modifications, previously considered non-existent, are introduced.
