The ‘essive’ in Eastern Khanty

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This chapter presents a corpus-based research, supplemented by elicitation with
the last speakers, into the distribution of a marker referred to as the ‘translative’
in Eastern Khanty. The description of the properties of this marker follows the
linguistic questionnaire that captures the contexts in which essive and/or translative
markers may occur in the Uralic languages. The study specifically investigates
the opposition between permanent and impermanent state in non-verbal
predications. The linguistic domains involved are non-verbal main predication,
secondary predication, complementation, and manner, temporal, and circumstantial
adverbial phrases. The use of the marker in the essive sense (associated
with state) is contrasted with it use in expressing the translative sense (associated
with change). Finally, the syntactic position of elements marked by this form is
discussed in relation to the position of focus constituents.
