Abstract:

This article deals mainly with the morphosyntactic (grammatical) (dis)agreement between subject and predicate in colloquial speech where the subject is followed by a noun structure with the preposition with. The reasons for the violation of grammatical agreement are sought. The relationship between morphosyntactic and semantic (logical) (dis)agreement is analyzed. Conclusions are made about which subject–predicate agreement in the considered structural model is most often violated in conversational discourse. The main reasons for grammatical or logical disagreement are sought in the subjective word order (rheme–theme) and the fragmentation of speech, characteristic of colloquial syntax.

Keywords:

morphosyntactic (grammatical) (dis)agreement, semantic (logical) (dis)agreement, noun structure with the preposition with
