UDK: 81’367 811.512.144

Pages: 19 - 23


The article examines the functioning of the polypredicative construction in the Kumyk language. The notion of a "polypredicative sentence" was introduced by the Novosibirsk syntactic school. Turkic languages are not characterized by properly complex sentences with two formally independent finite parts connected by an analytical form. Case affixes and postpositions form not finite verb forms, but infinite verb forms. Such constructions in agglutinative languages are the most frequent.


Keywords: the Kumyk language, Turkic languages, infinite verb, polypredicative construction..
