Distribution of the Future Tense Forms in Polish: Corpus-based Research
Fundamental and Computational Linguistics
In modern Polish there are two analytic forms of future tense: auxiliary verb + infinitive (będę czytać), auxiliary verb + l-participle of past tense (będę czytał). The aim of this work is to investigate is there are any parameters which can influence the distribution of these two forms with the help of statistical methods (Multiple Correspondance Analysis, Linear Regression). We made a database using corpus of modern Polish (http://nkjp.pl), grammatical dictionary SGJP (http://sgjp.pl), Sketch Engine (https://www.sketchengine.co.uk) and the actional classes theory, suggested by S.G. Tatevosov in (Tatevosov 2010). We found that there are some specific features of this phenomenon, however, none of the parameters which we chose, doesn’t influence this distribution. It means that there can be another parameters which have to be found or this distribution is totally free.
