Abstract:

The paper is part of a series of publications that aim to examine various aspects in the analysis of appositive constructions. The purpose of this particular study is to reveal the multidimensional, diverse, and complex interaction between three types of syntactic relations – attributive, predicative, and appositive. The study offers a critical review of various theories on the status of the grammatical relation between the components of non-detached (close) appositive constructions. The main argument of this paper is that determining this status, on the one hand, is a function of the morphological and semantic characteristics of the components of the construction; and on the other hand, it determines their syntactic status.

Keywords:

apposition; grammatical relation; appositive relation; non-detached (close) appositive construction; attribution; predication
