Morpho-syntactic study of determinant constructs activated by the Italian variable demonstrative pronoun 'quello'

Izabela Anna Szantyka

Abstract


The aim of the present paper is to review, describe and analyze determinant constructs, activated by the Italian variable demonstrative pronoun quello. The main corpus of the study consists on the discrimination and description of the morpho-syntactic peculiarities of the constructions in question, which can be identified with three structural types of determination (adjectival, prepositional and relative), in the interior of which atypical and more complex cases may be observed and give scope for uncertainty as to the typological classification. Further to this, the article offers a summary explanation and illustration of the difference between determinant and appositive sequences, as well as a concise description of the specific features of the determinant demonstrative and its sequences, relating to its referential, semantic, pragmatic and textual potential.

Keywords


demonstratives; morpho-syntax; determination; pragma-semantics
