Summary / Abstract:

ENSince the early days of Indo-European language studies, the occurrence has been noticed of rival forms of adjectives which have the same base or root and differ from one another only by their derivational affix. However, competing variants of borrowed adjectives in language typology have received scant attention. This research presents a preliminary cross-linguistic study on the search for competing patterns which are characteristic of loan adjective formations in the Baltic, Slavic, and Germanic languages. In order to find out if the adjective doublets in reality are synonymous, dictionary data have been compared with collocational adjective-noun corpus data of four languages. [From the publication]
