ANALYSABLE SYNONYMS. CASE STUDY: DIMINUTIVE SYNONYMY
(Abstract)

This article defines the analyzable synonymy and offers a concise presentation of the main types and subtypes of it (i.e. etymological and non-etymological, internal, external and mixt ones). A particular emphasis is laid on the etymological analysable synonymy. Within the latter it is the synonymy between two or more diminutives that is brought into attention. This type of synonymy is also theoretically discussed and classified from different points of view. The following aspects are presented together with examples and commentaries: the specificity of the diminutive synonymy, the relevance of the semantic equivalence within a diminutive series, the existence of certain structural patterns, the role of the analogy in diminutive suffix derivation, the ways to accomplish this type of synonymy, etc.

Cuvinte-cheie: sinonimie, derivare, diminutival, etimologie, dublet.
Keywords: synonymy, derivation, diminutive, etymology, doublet.
