On the Semantics of Verbs of Motion in Russian

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, I discuss the aspectual properties of verbs of manner of motion in
Russian. These verbs are characterized by special aspectual properties, since in
addition to the typical perfective/imperfective opposition, they exhibit a further
aspectual distinction, sometimes referred to in the literature as determinate /
indeterminate contrast. Determinate and indeterminate verbs do not differ in terms of their lexical meaning but do have different aspectual usagesץ
