On reverse hybrid wh-coordination in Russian


← 546 | 547 →Ksenia Zanon

Indiana University

The paper is concerned with Russian Reverse Hybrid wh-constructions (rHWh), as in (1), comparing them with (2). In both cases a wh- and a Y/N question are conjoined. The point of divergence pertains to word order: in (1) the wh-word appears before the Q-marker li, whereas (2) evinces a permutation of this order.


Kto i skoro li pridet?

who and soon Q will.come

‘Who will come and will somebody come soon?’

(rHWh: Wh & X li)


Skoro li i kto pridet?
