Morphologie constructionnelle du slovaque et éléments de comparaison avec le français : les adjectifs dénominaux construits par composition et dérivation.

Abstract : In this corpus-based study, we are concerned with the formation of two types of denominal adjectives in Slovak: adjectives suffixed with -ský (Nský) and compound adjectives formed by an adjective and a noun (AN). The obtained results are verified and tested in two surveys conducted with Slovak native speakers. The Slovak morphological constructions and compared with semantically equivalent expressions in French. The formation of AN (MODROOKÝ 'blue-eyed') obeys a set of three types of semantic constraints : (i) between AN and the Head-Noun (HdN), e.g. modrooké dievča 'blue-eyed girl', (ii) between the noun-component (N) and the HdN (OKO 'eye' et dievča 'girl'), and (iii) between the adjective-component (A) and the N (MODRÝ 'blue' et OKO 'eye'). An AN refers to an inherent property of an individual denoted by HdN. The interpretation in force is a Part-Whole Relation: the N denotes a constitutive and visible part of the concrete entity referred to by the HdN. The suffixation by means of -ský applies mainly to proper nouns denoting either a portion of space (toponym) or a human (anthroponym). In Slovak, the semantic interpretation of an Nský adjective is normally the same as that of the base noun. Toponymic adjectives like LIBANONSKÝ 'lebanese' can refer to the geographical space as well as to the inhabitants of this space. Only the HdN's semantic value is able to disambiguate the meaning of such a toponymic Nský. As for anthroponymic Nský like STALINSKÝ 'stalinien', they are likely to appear, besides the relational use, i.e. 'concerning Stalin', in qualifying contexts: 'comparable to Staline'.
