Abstract:

This monograph deals with one type of phrasal structures - noun headed
structures. They may be extremely complex and frequently differ in
complexity from language to language. Therefore, it is useful to contrast
noun phrases in two or more languages, here it is Bosnian and English. The
aim of the contrastive study is to present both differences and
similarities holding between structures of noun phrases in Bosnian and
English, not from the point of view of one of them, but from the point of
view of how a universal syntactic category, such as the noun phrase, is
handled in both of them. In that sense the study has a theoretical, rather
than applied, character.

The consideration of contrastive data from two languages (Bosnian being
highly inflected in contrast to English) is useful in solving some
theoretical problems, specifically those regarding the relations obtaining
between modifiers and heads of syntactic categories. The detailed
description of the structure of noun phrases in two languages makes it
possible to abstract common properties that they share. This in turn
contributes to a better understanding of the general properties of the noun
phrase in language and its place in Universal Grammar (written in Bosnian).
The author has Ph.D. in linguistics (Indiana University, 1986) and teaches
linguistics at the University of Sarajevo. (written in Bosnian)

Sintaksa imeničkih sintagmi u bosanskom i engleskom jeziku
Nedžad Leko

Univerzitetu u Sarajevu Ova monografija se bavi sintaksom struktura sa
imenicom kao upravnim članom u bosanskom jeziku i odgovarajućim
sintagmatskim strukturama u engleskom jeziku. Prvi dio monografije
predstavlja skraćenu verziju autorove doktorske disertacije. Teorijski
pristup je bio generativni i struktura imeničkih sintagmi se analizirala sa
stanovišta Teorije vezivanja i upravljanja koja je podrazumijevala da je
imenička sintagma po svojoj sintagmatskoj kategoriji NP. Kasniji razvoj
teorije i postuliranje funkcionalnih kategorija je uslovilo da se imeničke
sintagme tretiraju kao DP.

U drugom dijelu monografije najprije se u zasebnim poglavljima prezentira
tretman sintagmatske strukture generalno u Teoriji principa i parametara, a
zatim i u minimalističkom programu. Poglavlja koja slijede su modifikovane
verzije autorovih novijih radova. U poglavlju 8 struktura imeničke sintagme
se reanalizira kao DP, a poglavlje 9 razmatra mogućnost da su u jezicima
bez članova imeničke sintagme ipak NP radije nego DP. Najzad poglavlja 10 i
11 razmatraju posebnu vrstu sintagmi u kojima se uz imenicu pojavljuje neki
kvantifikator, ili broj. Autorova disertacija, kao i neki od radova na
kojim se zasnivaju poglavlja 8-11, pisani su na engleskom jeziku. Pošto je
na bosanskom jeziku objavljeno jako malo radova koji se bave generativnom
gramatikom, autor ovom monografijom želi dati doprinos obogaćivanju
lingvističke literature na bosanskom jeziku koja tretira sintaksičke
fenomene sa teorijskih polazišta generativne gramatike. Autor ima doktorat
iz lingvistike (Indiana University, 1986) i sada predaje lingvistiku na
Univerzitetu u Sarajevu.
