Abstract

We investigate valency properties of partials – words and constructions that express the Part/Whole relation, primarily in Russian, offering new observations largely based on the Russian National Corpus. Special attention is given to such lexical units as bol’šinstvo ‘majority’, men’šinstvo ‘minority’, čast’ ‘part’, protsent ‘percentages’, v bol’šinstve svoem ‘in its <their, etc.>majority’, ‘po bol’šej časti ‘for the most part’, etc.
