Abstracts
The objective of this paper is a syntactic description of complex nominal expressions in English and two Slavic languages: Czech and Polish. The analysed nominal phrases are those with a head noun and multiple levels of pre-modification expressed by means of determiners, adjectives, numerals and so-called quantifiers, i.e. elements that indicate quantity, such as many/much, plenty, little/few, all, etc. In Czech and Polish, quantifiers can be classified into different groups according to the agreement patterns they exhibit when entering a relationship with a noun and a verb. The aim here is to compare the properties of those nominal expressions between the two Slavic languages and English and to provide some possible explanations for those special characteristics by reviewing recent research in linguistic as well as extralinguistic fields. The paper consists of data from English, Polish and Czech to show the differences between analytic and synthetic languages, which might be important and useful for interpreters, translators and students.
