Polish Action Nominals in the Light of the Valency of the Corresponding Verbs

Author(s): Magdalena Danielewiczowa
Subject(s): Theoretical Linguistics, Applied Linguistics
Published by: Wydział Polonistyki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
Keywords: semantics; valency; nominalization; action nominals; result nominals

Summary/Abstract: This article deals with the problem of the relations between Polish verbs and their nominalizations, namely, the action nominals on the one hand, and the result nominals on the other. The author considers the regularities in inheriting by the first category the valencies of the corresponding verbs as well as the phenomena associated with the lack of such regular inheritance in the case of the second class. The subject of the analysis are speech act verbs and their nominals, i.e. the series of expressions like: {grozić} ‘threaten’– {grożenie} ‘threatening’ – {groźba} ‘threat’, {deklarować} ‘declare’ – {deklarowanie} ‘declaring’– {deklaracja} ‘declaration’, etc. The author provides tests allowing us to distinguish action nominals in the strict sense (i.e. the gerundive nominals) from result nominals.
