Abstract:

The paper examines the usage of the verbs sbadvam and sluchvam (‘make come true’ and ‘make happen’) as „new“ transitive and causal verbs, often occur as phraseological units (sbadna/sbadvam mechti, zhelanija; sluchvam neshtata). Although we can’t except a foreign influence, the changes in two „ex-reflexive“ verbs argue for change in thinking of modern Bulgarian. This is the active, energetic standpoint, which is demonstrated by opinions of speakers themselves. These different views are in comments, discussed the analyzed tendencies to transitivity and dereflexivity of Bulgarian verb.

Keywords:

transitivity – intransitivity, reflexivity – dereflexivity, causality, activity
