Some interesting tendencies were found, concerning the insertion of certain lexical types into different syntactic positions, e.g. types of adjectives typical for predicative positions and other typical for attributive positions. The relationship between the semantics of the co-ordinated syntactic elements and their functions in topic-comment structure was studied, the correlation between the frequencies of subordinate clauses and lexical semantics of the governing predicate was proved /with predicates expressing the attitude of the speaker to the content of communication/, the correlation between morphological category of infinitive and semantic category of modality was found. A special attention was COMPUTATIONAL DATA ANALYSIS FOR SYNTAX 395 paid to the syntactic structures with verbs to...
