FUNCTIONING OF PREPOSITIONAL AND OBJECTIVE PHRASES AND DERIVATIVE
PREPOSITIONS IN THE RUSSIAN LANGUAGE
Functioning of derived prepositions in modern speech is of special
interest for linguists, since the semantic and behavioral features of
these words are less studied than their formal characteristics. In
addition, prepositions not only in the system of parts of speech, but
also in linguistics used to be seen as ‘empty words’ in the sense that
no special studies of the functional and semantic features of a
preposition were conducted in linguistics: prepositions were studied as
a whole, as a class of words.
In many respects this is due to the fact that special approaches are
required for their study, taking into account the specifics of this
syncategorematic word, which includes not only words of different
structures, but also transitional forms, different in time of occurrence
and degree of receiving a preposition.
