Predicative Possession


Weiss, Daniel (2022). Predicative Possession. In: Greenberg, Marc. Encyclopedia of Slavic Languages and Linguistics Online. Leiden: Brill, online.

Abstract

After discussing some general restrictions of predicative possession, the article provides an overview of the three main constructions that mark this sentence type in Slavic: the be + adessive subtype, which dominates in East Slavic, the have subtype, which prevails in West and South Slavic, and the be + dative subtype, which marginally is attested in all three groups, although with varying restrictions. All three subtypes overlap in certain areas and uses. Next, the converse relation of predicative possession is briefly characterized, and the final section summarizes the historical development.
