Abstract:

The article discusses several solutions that aim to reveal the direction of the dependence between the components of the appositional construction. An emphasis is placed on the analysis of the most amorphous and debatable structural type: common noun + proper noun. One of these solutions concerns the choice of a basic research approach and its consistent and logically sound application, which would aid the correct “distribution” of the syntactic functions of the components in constructions of this structural type. The article draws special attention to the autonymic use of proper nouns. It is based on the premise that the two components of this type of appositional construction can have a common reference, which is a function of their different referential features and that these components contribute – to a varying degree – to the realization of these features.

Keywords:
