Mirative ‘take and do’ constructions in Russian: The impact of negation


Weiss, Daniel (2022). Mirative ‘take and do’ constructions in Russian: The impact of negation. In: Iomdin, Leonid; Milićević, Jasmina; Polguère, Alain. Lifetime linguistic inspirations : To Igor Mel’čuk from Colleagues and Friends for his 90th Birthday. Berlin: Peter Lang, 443-453.

Abstract

The paper investigates Russian negative mirative constructions of the type vzjat’ i/da i/ da ne sdelat’ from their first attestation in the Russian national corpus until today. The introduction of a negated second verb is interpreted as a further stage of the grammaticalization of the mirative construction type. The paper focuses on the impact of negation, discusses both the most frequent and non-canonical subjects and second verbs, and is rounded up with contextually bound pragmatic effects.
