A Note on "Predicative Words" in Russian.
Wheeler, Marcus
Annali, (Instituto Universitario Orientale) Sezione Slava, v4 n1, Naples 1961
The problem of determining the grammatical status of predicate words in Russian is examined in this article. The contrast between the morphological heterogeneity and the seemingly uniform function of predicative forms has led to the postulation of a new part of speech described as the "category of state". However, the status of predicate words as a whole suggests to the author that their function is more akin to that of identifiable, existing parts of speech and that the introduction of a special "category of state" may be superfluous.
