N.V.Krushevskii’s contribution to the study of the issue of suffixal complexification


The author considers the contribution of N.V.Krushevskij to the study of important issues related to suffixal complexification in Russian: its derivational potential, the place and role of duplicating complexification (the compatibility of synonymous suffixes), and the interpretation of morphemic complexes resulting from suffixal complexification (a complex suffix; a sequence of formants; an integral formant dividable into morphemes). The article analyzes the modern state of the problem, its controversial aspects, and emphasizes its significance for the development of the general theory of language and applied linguistics. The author also outlines the perspectives of further studies in the area of suffixal complexification.
