Abstract:   (944 Views)
This article is devoted to the analysis of the expression of the verb version in Yenisei languages and its connection with the category of possessiveness.
In Yenisei languages, such a relict phenomenon as a category of the verbal version has been preserved. That is, diatheses, which denote not the voice of the verb, but indicate spatial orientation, combativeness, and ineffectiveness of the actants. The main significance of this diathesis is associated with the addressee's hyper role; therefore, they must be regarded as different versions, namely, as oriented and subject versions.
As the version indicators are the elements taken by the verb; they indicate different relationships between subject and object, and also serve to express some other categories. The indicators that make up the forms of the subject version coincide with the possessive prefixes of the name and the indicators of the genitive case, expressing possession and belonging.
For some groups of verbs, possessive forms may be replaced by ordinary forms of the subject version. In the resulting verb forms, the version category, sometimes intersecting with the category of the aspect, is transformed into a possessive structure, the affixes of the ba-a-i and ba-bu-bu series go back to possessiveness, and the affixes of group D, accompanying the personal affixes of group B possessiveness.
