Abstract:

The article examines a particular variation of the appositional construction, which has not been systematically investigated in the Bulgarian syntactic literature. The study analyses syntactic formations that belong to one of the main types of the appositional construction: common noun + common noun. On the one hand, they exhibit characteristics of the basic (prototypical) construction since they are constituted only by nouns that are not formally linked; on the other hand, however, they differ from the prototype, since – at least at first glance – their structure consists not of two but of three components. These formations, which are not a homogeneous group, could be called exceptional appositive constructions. The specific features of each subgroup require the application of different research approaches when establishing the logical and syntactic dependencies between the components of the constructions.

Keywords:

exceptional appositive construction; logical approach; apposition; logical relations; prototype.
