Abstract:

This study is conceived as a contribution to a tyoplogy of attributive
contructions, focussing on constructions exhibiting splits of head
proporties. The term "dependency reversal in noun-attributive
constructions" (DNRA) is used to refer to possessive-like attributive
constructions (of the type (that) idiot of a doctor), with the attribute
surfacing as the formal head and the semantic head surfacing as the formal
possessor. The body of the study presents a discussion of DNRA contructions
as attested in six individual languages: Even (resp. other Tungusic
languages), Aleut, Hausa, Gude, Chinook and Latin. The variation of the
DNRA patterns, in particular along the parameter of the attribute's
upgrading/recategorization, is further considered.

Following the lines of structure-based typologies, an upward taxonomy of
DNRA structures is presented to include other cases of constructions
involving the attribute's upgrading and the head (-to-possessor) demotion.
In search of DNRA related patterns the discussion is extended to internal
relative clauses and constructions with "dominant attributes." Finally
factors favouring the rise of DNRA structures are tentatively considered:
apart from diachronic factors, underdifferentiation of lexical categories
as well as pragmatic salience of the attribute are shown to contribute to
DNRA processes.
