TAG QUESTIONS VARIETY: RENAISSANCE PERIOD

Merkuryeva Natalia.

Abstract
The work analyzes the constructions with tag questions from Renaissance artworks (circa 1485-1650). The discussion includes both "canonical" constructions with a predictive tag question like She is at home, isn't she? and constructions with other attached parts: an interjection, a well-established predictive combination, a word, an or-structure like She is at home, eh?/ say you? / then? / or is she?.The typology of the constructions, lexical composition of the attached parts, grammatical details and some stylistic features of the construction of the reference sentence (anchor) and the attached question have been discussed. The discussion consists of authorial choice of lexical means, the arrangement of words in the tags, the place of tags in the anchors, the peculiarities of graphical representation of the constructions in the texts.

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