STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL TYPOLOGY IN A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF PRODUCTIVE WORD-FORMATION IN ENGLISH AND RUSSIAN LANGUAGES

Abstract

In the article the peculiarities of morphological formation of compared languages (English/Russian) as a factor contributing to character of dynamic processes in the sphere of productive wordformation. In the process of contrastive study of translation equivalents of English nominal complexes, phrasal verbs, and derivatives, a conclusion about different status of Russian and English derivatives in terms of functional typology is made. It is stated that the analytical structure of English language makes up for the development of potential word-formation, while in Russian language there are essential morphological and phonotactical restrictions. The diversion of potential and occasional derivatives in connection with the analysis of interlingual lexical correspondences in parallel text fragments is noted.
