Typology of Appositives with Proper Names
2018
The appositive constructions are syntactic constructions in which two or more noun phrases describe one individual object and they form one noun phrase. Each of these noun phrases indicates a characteristic or attribute of the same referent. There are many different kinds of appositive constructions. This work is devoted to constructions involving proper names. The analysis includes languages from four families: Indo-European, Uralic, East Caucasian and West Caucasian. I identify two types of appositive structure in this research: the appositives with geographical names and the appositives with proper names like surnames or nicknames. Looking through the grammars of languages, I highlight the main types of word order within the constructions and determine the presence or the absence of case marking between the constituents. The aim of this work is to produce the typology of languages from the samples by identified types of constructions.
