RUSSIAN CONTACT-INDUCED INNOVATIONS IN EASTERN KHANTY

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The paper addresses the issues of contact - induced structural change in the native Siberian Eastern Khanty dialects.
Contemporary data from Eastern Khanty spoken discourse demonstrate increasing frequency of examples of grammatical convergence, in which the original grammar of Eastern Khanty replicates the grammar of the socially dominant Russian. These examples fall under various structural
types, including: phonological disharmonies, auxiliary verb construction strategies, word-order alternations, complex predicate splits, analytical imperatives, analytical conditionals, relativized and finite RC strategies.
It is argued that all manifest structural innovations are induced by contact with Russian in the fully bilingual environment.
