    рема

    In the following phrase I find the word рема that is also in Морфологический словарь, but not in my dictionary nor in other dictionaries in the web. What does it mean? :
    В вопросительном предложении ремой вопроса независимо от места интонационого центра является местоименное слово (что, кто, куда, где, и т.д.).
    Thanks.

    "Рема" is one of the two components of the phrase. First one - "тема" (a theme) is a given, initial info, it's often presented as a subject of the sentence. Rhema is a new, additional info, a point of the sentence: "Магазин закрывается поздно". Rhema is accentuated by intonation or by positioning it in the end of the sentence.

    In English, theme and rheme are often called topic and comment.

    It is known that every complete sentence has a theme and a rheme. The theme is one or more words which express already known or understood information, i.e. information that is being taken for granted. The rheme is new information that a speaker wants to communicate.
