On Turkish non-canonical possessives

Abstract [en]

Turkic canonical possessive noun phrases consist of the possessor marked with the genitive, and the possessee with a possessive suffix. This study deals with Turkic non-canonical constructions, where a genitive marker attaches to the possessor, but the possessee remains unmarked. It is argued that in the non-canonical construction, the frame of reference is delimited to the world known/familiar to the interlocutors through shared knowledge of the world or shared discourse. Thus, these constructions express the concept of “familiarity” with possible overtones of empathy or endearment, or with negative connotations. As the speaker and hearer are typical participants in the deictic system, non-canonical possessives are most frequently used with first- and second-person possessors.
