Problems of Classification and Functional Typology of Subordinate Clauses

Aida Kurani

Abstract


The classification of subordinate clauses is made in different ways, relating to various aspects of current syntactic theory, based on different methodological traditions or characteristics of the relevant language study. It continues to be seen as one of the most problematic issues, to be resolved. Various criteria are used, sometimes conflicting classifications, but also the different applications of the same criteria. This study aims at highlighting the way in which subordinate clauses are treated in Albanian grammar and studies from the earliest periods up to the recent ones. It aims to enlighten these syntax aspects for two reasons: First, problems, which involve them, are wide enough and there is always a gap to discuss about them. Second, studies, which address this issue date back away in time and through their treatment is intended to provide a modest contribution in advancing Albanian studies in the field of syntax.
