La syntaxe connective en tchétchène

Abstract : Whatever the studied language, the communicational needs result in distinguishing several types of sentences differing syntactically by the nature of their head. Connective syntax comprises verbal and nonverbal head sentences, which, identify, present an entity or which qualify in the broad sense of the term. Connective syntax is opposed to nuclear syntax, comprising all sentences with a verbal head which distributes specific roles to each one of its expansions.
This article presents connective syntax in Chechen and more particularly its various syntactic constructions expressing the attribution of a quality. One observes that if certain verbs are specialized in this usage (connective verbs), others (nucleo-connective verbs) will have to adapt to this construction by undergoing a syntactic transformation, and finally the non connective verbs can only attribute by the intermediary of a connector.
