Morphological Polysemy in Old Armenian Language (A Synchronic Study Attempt)

Lalik M. Khachatryan


Key words: morphological polysemy, synchronical aspect, diachronical aspect, polysemantic words, divalent words, trivalent words.


Annotation: Morphological polysemy, as a language phenomenon, has been formed both synchronically and diachronically in the language development period.

In old Armenian synchronic polysemantic words appear in morphological divalent and trivalent combinability. The  distribution of  morphological values of such words occurs on the syntactic level. In old Armenian sчynchronic polysemy can be studied either within the list of notional words or in the framework of modal words.
