Summary/Abstract: Piotr Sobotka proposes the term of ‘historical unit’ to describing the quasi-lexemes the ancient language. This paper discusses two basic methods of the reconstruction of historical units, i.e. both the internal reconstruction and comparative reconstruction. Examples discussed in the paper are markers of uninflected classes and that is the reason of the difficulty in functional categorizing these items. The paper brings some solutions to these problems in analysing of the utterance structures, especially thematic-rhematic structure of sentences.
