Abstract:

The research is an attempt to analize active changes in the sphere of Bulgarian verb – transitiveness and dereflectivity as a manifestation of language universal causality. The newly imagined verbs, which are examined, are causatives – faliram, vhodiram, pretendiram, sluchvam, strahuvam, usmihvam, srabotvam. We pay attention to the stylistic differentiation of the verbs; we look for reasons to appear. The opinions are from both scholars and amateurs (the common language carrier as a means of communication). We share the arguments pro and con verbs existence, without prognosticate their further fate.

Keywords:

verbal usationalism, neologism, transitivity, dereflectivity, causality, language trends
