Sonnenhauser, Barbara; Meermann, Anastasia (2016). Das Perfekt im Serbischen zwischen slavischer und balkanischer Entwicklung. In: Bazhutkina, Alena; Sonnenhauser, Barbara. Beiträge zur Slavistik. XXII. JungslavistInnen-Treffen in München, 12.-14. September 2013. Leipzig: Biblion Media, 83-110.

Abstract

The present paper is concerned with the formal and functional development of the analytic past, i.e. l-participle + auxiliary ‘to be’, in North Slavic (including Slovene) and Balkan Slavic. While in the former languages, the analytic past has developed into a narrative preterit, it is generally assumed to have kept its perfect semantics and additionally have acquired renarrative and evidential functions in Balkan Slavic. These functions are related to the omission of the auxiliary in the 3rd person. The variation in the usage of the auxiliary, in turn, is interpreted as underlying distinct morphological paradigms – perfect and renarrative – and hence as indicating a different path of development than observed for the rest of Slavic. Upon closer inspection, however, the development of these forms might have proceeded less differently in both language groups than traditionally assumed. This is suggested by the ‘auxiliary variation’ in colloquial Serbian and western Serbian dialects. Exhibiting functional similarities with both, Serbian is located at the junction between North and Balkan Slavic.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
