Original scientific paper

Đuro Blažeka



In this paper the author analyses the corpus that was collected in the research of the speech of Goričan - a small inhabited place close to the Croatian-Hungarian border. The analysis of the corpus takes into consideration parts of speech, fields of the extralinguistic reality to which the words from the corpus belong and their phonological, morphological as well as semantic adaptation. A special emphasis is given to the analysis of recent secondary semantic adaptations (mainly derogation), by means of which those Hungarianisms that have equivalents in standard language prolong their presence in the active vocabulary of the speakers of the speech of Goričan. The author critically refers to the claim made by Hadrovics that the adverbs that had resulted from the adverbialization of the construction na + A/L of adjectives are an influence of the Hungarian language. He divided the examples of verbs with a separated prefix (adverbs of direction) into those where the adverbs can be dropped without any consequence on the meaning and those where the targeted meaning disappears if the adverb is left out.
