Abstract:[The intensifier însuşi ‘himself’ in old Romanian (the 16th century)]
The article investigates the reflexes in old Romanian of the Latin intensifier ipse. While the direct descendent îns(ŭ) had few attestations and basically functioned as a pronominal substitute under certain syntactic restrictions or developed into an adversative conjunction, a noun or an adverb, the forms created in Romanian with the definite article (însul) or the agglutinated dative reflexive particle –şi displayed overlapping usages as substitutes, syntactic anaphors (reflexives) and discourse anaphors. In old Romanian însuşi functioned as a floating intensifier which developed various meanings via conventional implicatures. It was only later, in modern Romanian, that însuşi split from proforms and reflexives, and grammaticalized as a nominal intensifier in DPs, with a fixed position.
Key words:
  • româna veche, intensificator, substitut, anaforă sintactică, anaforă discursivă
  • old Romanian, intensifier, substitue, syntactic anaphor, discourse anaphor
