TRADITION AND INNOVATIONS IN OMELAN PATRYCKI'S GRAMMAR (GRAMMATICAL NORMS AND TERMINOLOGY, THEORETICAL ISSUES)
Languages of publication
The grammar proposed by Partycki was published in 1973. Since that time it has been republished four times. In the following editions, Partycki modified his grammar especially in the field of grammar terminology. However, some changes in grammar description and orthography can also be observed. Based on the analysis of several phenomena, the author investigates to what extent Partycki's grammar continues the thesis from the papers published earlier and keeps the forms from local dialects and, on the other hand, to what extent it introduces new propositions and eliminates the elements from local dialects, influencing in this way establishment of the standard. After analysing the selected data, it can be assumed that Partycki's grammar widely corresponds to contemporarily established inflectional standards. At the same time, when these data were compared with data from other grammars published earlier, Partycki's version is seen to eliminate mainly those variants that reveal dialectical features and show the tendency towards standardisation of grammatical rules. As concerns terminology, Partycki was the first to introduce a number of names which continue to be used. It is clear that to avoid Russian borrowings or Russian calques, Partycki introduced Ukrainian names, tried to create them himself, and used the names found in the works of his predecessors. Partycki was not significantly innovative in the theory of grammar, and in most cases he followed the established views.
