Abstract

In the Macedonian standard language, po [after] and posle [afterwards] are two different lexical units which have their own meaning and specific uses. They also differ in regard of the word class in which they belong, that is, po [after] is a preposition and posle [afterwards] is an adverb. In the newspaper sub-style these two different lexical units are often incorrectly interchanged, because they are considered synonyms and, therefore, they are incorrectly used. Taking into consideration the basic meaning of the adverb posle [afterwards]: potoa, po nekoe vreme [then, after some time], the paper is based on the premise that the interchange of these two different lexical units is done on the basis of the meanings of the preposition po [after] that are connected with time. The analysis of the written material, i.e. the electronic editions of several daily newspapers is expected to prove that the previously stated premise is correct. The analyzed material demonstrates that, in this case, the incorrect use, i.e. the incorrect interchange, appears as a result of the unfamiliarity with the meanings of the two lexical units. At the same time, it emphasizes the role of the proofreaders in the correction and also in the final formation of the written text.
