Concorrenza e/o alternanza di ‘vocativo: nominativo’ nei termini volgari in serbo(croato), polacco e bulgaro. Un’analisi qualitativa

  • Andrea Trovesi

In those Slavic languages where the vocative inflectional case endings are used inconsistently, a statistically increased occurrence of vocative’s endings can be observed with nouns having a diminutive or hypocoristic semantics. Assuming that is the ‘affective charge’ of some specific nouns which enhances the probability of vocative case forms, the present paper has two aims: 1. to verify empirically in three Slavic languages (Serbian, Polish, Bulgarian) whether the vocative case is better preserved with nouns having a derogatory semantics (insults and bad words), 2. to establish which are the rules governing their use.

  • Vocative case,
  • Nominative case,
  • Slavic languages (Serbian,
  • Polish,
  • Bulgarian),
  • Derogatory words,
  • Competing inflectional case endings,
