Philology Matters


The article deals with the problem of verb classifications in the English and Uzbek languages, as well as reveals the isomorphic and allomorphic features of these verbs. In addition, explained some ideas about the comparison of verb types taking into account the relationship between grammar and vocabulary, and the theory of optimal scientific classification of verbs is proved. However, the grammatically significant classification of the verbs, according to their lexica-grammatical meaning, formation, relation to the object, obligatory valance; whether they require prepositional object or not, the limit of the action in the time, the intransitive verbs which can be used in the passive voice and the verbs which are used with a formal subject have been worked out.
When it comes to the objective of the comparative study of verb types, it is crucial to mention that the similarities of the grammatically relevant types of the verbs such as notional, monovalent, bivalent, trivalent verbs and the differences of the non-finite forms of the verbs like infinitive, gerund, participle and adverbial participle have been revealed in the languages compared. In addition to the transitive and intransitive verbs, bifunctional verbs have been identified in the English language.
