THE SEMANTICO-INFORMATIONAL FACTOR IN SOME CASES OF SYNTACTIC CONDENSATION RESULTING IN PARTICIPLE CLAUSES
MetadataShow full item record
This article discusses some participle clauses in the English language, which are formed as a result of syntactic condensation. It argues that the semantico-informational factor plays a crucial role in determining their syntactic status. The examples are presented in such a way as to illustrate how we can avoid ungrammatical and illogical sentences and statements or solve potential ambiguities. These problems are discussed on the basis of Grancharov’s model for functional analysis of the information structure of the sentence.
