Abstract:

In this paper an interpretation is presented of the competition of the linguistic forms as an essential typological characteristic of the living languages. The competition is associated with the so called linguistic excesses which bring forth lexical and grammatical doublets. It follows from here that for the rationalization of the competition it is also necessary, according to the definition, to make sense of the opposition of the lexical substance of language, on the one hand, and its grammatical organization, on the other. The material suggests that the competition gives rise to vibrating groups in the language system leading to fundamental structural changes. The illustrative material comes from the Slavonic languages but the studied phenomenon possesses universal characteristics.
