On the Distribution of Productive Categories in Russian of the Sixties.
Frink, Orrin
A statistical analysis of 3,170 entries in the Kotelova and Sorokin dictionary "Novyje slova i znacenija: slovar'-spravocnik po materialam pressy i literatury 60-x godov," Moscow, 1973 and the Stejnfel'dt dictionary "Castotnyj slovar' sovremennogo Russkogo Literaturnogo Jazyka," Moscow, n.d. establishes a clear-cut correlation between the new words by grammatical category and the distribution of words in use in Russian in the sixties. Four of the thirteen categories identified by the Stejnfel'dt analysis prove to be productive according to the Kotelova and Sorokin work: nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. The results are presented in two statistical tables and one chart. (Author)
