Summary
The paper is dedicated to transitive verbs and nominal phrases forming nominal predicates in Croatian Glagolitic texts. Only the present tense forms from the *es-stem are considered to constitute „pure” copula with no lexical meaning. The finite forms originating from the *bhu-stem put the narrated event into the time frame. A large group of semi copular verbs with the meaning ‘to stay’, ‘to be made, ‘to become’, ‘to pretend’, ‘to seem, to look like’ and ‘to be called’ are further discussed. The author points to the influence of Greek and Latin written sources as well as vernacular on Croatian Church Slavonic syntactic constructions.
