THE ENGLISH ABSOLUTE CONSTRUCTION WITH ADVERBIAL PREDICATIVE ELEMENT AND ITS BULGARIAN FUNCTIONAL EQUIVALENTS
MetadataShow full item record
The absolute construction with adverbial predicative element is one of the four non-verbal subtypes of absolute constructions in English. The present paper briefly outlines the main characteristic features of this construction and focuses further on its functional equivalents in Bulgarian. The latter are classified and analysed according to several criteria, i.e. their syntactic structure, morphological representation and semantic function in the sentence. A dominant functional equivalent is identified and some conclusions are drawn with respect to the degree of translation correspondence between the absolute construction under observation and its functional equivalents.
