Abstract [en]

Karaim is a Kipchak Turkic language that has been spoken in today’s Lithuania for more than six hundred years. The dominating non-Turkic languages of the area have heavily influenced its structure and the communicative habits of its speakers. Intensive copying processes have also induced changes in the morphology. A general tendency is to copy analytical devices of the contact languages. In Turkic, modal categories are typically expressed by synthetic means. Karaim today applies the typical Turkic inventory of modal suffixes. In addition, selective and global copies of foreign modal auxiliary verbs are used to express possibility, ability, obligation, etc. Frequential and combinational properties of the non-Turkic models have been copied onto native Karaim modal categories.
