THE CONCEPTS OF PERSONALITY : IMPERSONALITY AND THE GRAMMATICALIZATION OF THE FORMS OF THE FUTURE TENSE IN THE BULGARIAN LANGUAGE
MetadataShow full item record
The research focuses on the grammaticalization of the forms of the Future Tense in the Bulgarian language. The main reason for the generalisation of the particle ще (will) (from õîòýòè is its impossibility, in non-metaphoric use, to connect with impersonalized subjects since it expresses a conscious emotional volitional mental process, typical only of people. The use of grammatical patterns with иска (want to) for a non-person involves transformation or metaphoric deciphering of the meaning, hence also gradual loss of the typical lexical meaning, i.e. abstract reconsidering, in which process only the meaning of the Future Tense remains relevant.
