MetadataShow full item record
The ten classes of words in Serbo-Croatian are classified in the present paper into three categories : I. words with a declension (nouns, adjectives, pronouns, numerals — when declinable); II. words with a conjugation (verbs); III. undeclined words (numerals — when indeclinable, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, particles, interjections). The author defines Serbo-Croatian words by taking into account their meaning, function, and form. Thus he applies the concept of Professor Aleksandar Belie, which has also been accepted by modern linguistics (Milka Ivie, Pravci u lingvistici /Trends in Linguistics/, third, enlarged edition, pp. 87 and 130). On the basis of the above considerations, the present author arrived at the most general meanings expressed by words in Serbo-Croatian as individual classes. In the Conclusion, the other systems of meaning and categories of words in Serbo-Croatian are also stated: derivational, phraseological, declensional, and conjugational. The author finds it... necessary to establish all the forms participating in the realization of the individual categories of meaning, emphasizing the need for such a study in the semantic-syntactic morphology of the modern Serbo-Croatian literary language.
