Abstract:   (4715 Views)
The article introduces an attempt to establish suitable principles of defining a subject as one of the main parts of sentence for ergative languages of Dagestan.
The problems of syntactic division of a sentence and peculiarities of its members in Dagestani languages are still examined only in general. Even the question of a number of principle members of the sentence is still under discussion. As the criteria for distinguishing of members of the sentence are traditionally used only semantic or pure formal features. There are no special researches in Dagestani languages studies, devoted to this question.
To distinguish the predicative of the sentence we suggest using three levels of the language: syntactical, semantic and pragmatic. However, we give advance to syntactical features as members of the sentence are syntactical category, and their specifics should be found in peculiarities of combination of words while forming a sentence. Formal criteria are also very important, but apart from morphology, syntax is interested not in forms of words separately, but in their combination with each other.....
