Abstract:

The paper aims at presenting the history of the Bulgarian linguistic thought on the status of word groups consisting of an appositive and a nominal it modifies. The research focus is laid on the multitude of ways authors interpret both grammatical relations between the components of the analysed word groups and the syntactic connections by means of which such relations are realized. While in the past the main problem had to do with mixing of detached secondary parts and the apposition, at present studies focus on the difficulty of identifying the syntactic functions of the components in the appositive word group. The main reason for such an ambivalent identification is that sentence components, which differ both semantically and morphologically, are defined as appositions without applying any sound criterion.

Keywords:

syntax, appositive word groups, apposition, grammatical relations, syntactic connections.
