ABSTRACT NOUNS IN MEDIAVAL BULGARIAN TRANSLATION OF JOHN CHRYSOSTOM’S HOMILIES “AGAINST THE JEWS”
MetadataShow full item record
John Chrysostom’s homilies Against the Jews (in Greek Ëüãïé êáôÜ rïõäáßùí) are part of the author’s rich heritage which belongs to the homiletic genre. They are part of the Slavic version of the collection containing Chrysostom’s homilies and sermons called “Margarit” which appeared in the 14th century. The study focuses on the abstract nouns, in particular, those formed with the suffix – “üñòâî”, registered in the translation of John Chrysostom’s anti-Judaic homilies. The word formation process, the semantics of the lexemes and their relation to the original Greek words are traced back. The place of a particular lexeme in the vocabulary of the Bulgarian language is highlighted diachronically by examining the use of the lexeme in numerous Old Bulgarian and Middle Bulgarian written records. The material for the study is an excerpt from manuscript № F. I 197 in the Russian National Library.
