In this chapter, the following issues are discussed: interrogative and exclamatory clauses, negation, presentative constructions, cognate constructions, feminine singular pronouns with neutral value, and appellation and forms of address. The first three sections analyse the main patterns of question formation, exclamatory, negative, and presentative structures in OR, and bring evidence regarding the evolution of the inventory of their specialized markers. A special section is dedicated to repetitive constructions (mainly present in translations of religious texts, but also found in original texts). The last two sections deal with discourse phenomena: the use of feminine singular pronouns as text organizers and the structures of address in OR.

Keywords:   interrogative, exclamatory construction, presentative construction, negation, cognate construction, pleonastic construction, neutral value, appellative phrase
