Kuleshova M.L. The Adjectives of the General Positive Evaluation in the Modern Slovenian Language: Semantics and Compatibility
The article deals with the differences in semantics and combinability of the adjectives of general evaluation with the “plus” in modern Slovenian language, primarily lexemes ‘dober’ and ‘lep’. The semantics of adjectives is analyzed in terms of the classification of various kinds of goodness, developed by philosopher H. von Wright. We come to the conclusion that a quality-pleasure opposition, which is not reflected in this classification, plays a key role for the differentiation of their usage.
