The Objective Case in Negative Clauses in Russian: The Genitive or the Accusative?
Restan, Per A.
Scando-Slavica, v6 p92-112 1960
The aim of this study is to give a description of the linguistic position of the negative genitive in written Russian and to explain the relationship between different factors. It is demonstrated that the negative genitive still holds its position as the stronger case in negative clauses with 69 percent of all sample cases in the genitive, as compared with 31 percent in the accusative case. However, it is noted that the accusative case is becoming more widely used in newspapers and in belles-lettres. Frequent statistical data with linguistic examples support the research and concluding remarks. (RL)
