THE FORMATION OF SYNAPTIC COMBINATIONS AND THE ECONOMY PRINCIPLE IN CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN
MetadataShow full item record
As one of the main word-formation methods in contemporary Bulgarian, the formation of synaptic combinations from both domestic and borrowed lexical material is characterized by high productivity (Murdarov 1983: 48). Many of the synaptic constructions registered in Dictionary of New Bulgarian Words2010 and Dictionary of New Bulgarian Words 2021 have a shorter equivalent form, which is either a direct borrowing or a result of a different nominalization process. The aim of this study is to present a structural classification of recent synaptic combinations in contemporary Bulgarian and show how the principle of linguistic economy is manifested with some of these combinations.
