“ABSOLUTE” TAG QUESTIONS OF RENAISSANCE

Merkuryeva Natalia.

Abstract
The paper deals with constructions with the tag question, the attached part in which is represented by specific structures of variation composition, such as dost? hast not? wast? no shall?. Being used by playwrights from around the middle of the 1500s, such structures, called in the article "absolute forms", by the beginning of the 1600s reach their greatest variety, and by the middle of the 1700s are out of use. "Absolute forms" have been systematized and considered by analogy with the previously described predictive tag questions from Renaissance texts. The found structures have been divided into three groups based on the degree of lexical-grammatical orientation of the components of the tag question to the main members of the base sentence. The lexical composition has been discussed, as well as some grammatical and stylistic characteristics of "absolute forms", which form their diversity. It has been shown that "absolute forms" form varieties on the basis of the author's choice of a substitute or full verb, which are combined with particles (not), exclamations (yes and no), interjections (ha, al), adverbs (so), and also on the basis of replacement of the predicative attached structure by sentence words yes? and no?

Key words: tag questions, obsolete tag questions, historical syntax, spoken interaction, authorial styles
