Negation and Conditional-Resultative Hypotactic Constructions in the Kartvelian Languages
Keywords:Negation, Conditional-Resulative, Hypotactic, Kartvelian Languages.
The negative and affirmative forms create an opposition in which the negative form is marked by various language means, namely, affixes denoting absence, negative particles etc. Based on the empirical material of the Kartvelian languages, the paper analyzes issues of negation with regard to conditional-resultative hypotactic constructions. It is well- known that condition is given in the subordinate clause, whereas the result is given in the main clause. In the Kartvelian languages conditional-resultative constructions may be affirmative and negative (containing the negative particle); the negative constructions embrace diverse types of context, depending on the function of the negative particle in the construction.
