К характеристике аспектуальной системы чукотско-камчатских языков

The paper proposes a functional survey of aspectual categories in the ‘core’ Chukchi-Kamchatkan languages Chukchi, Koryak and Alutor. It is based primarily on the existing corpora of these languages. The data from corpora, grammatical descriptions and text collections are reconsidered in terms of elementary aspectual meanings and their clustering. Based on an intragenetic typological analysis, some more vs. less stable elements of the aspectual system are isolated, and their probable functional evolution is discussed. The paper briefly considers the interaction of aspectual meanings with other verbal categories: the future tense, the unwitnessed past, and negation. аспект, перфект, перфектив, эвиденциальность, результатив, имперфектив, будущее время, чукотский, алюторский, корякский aspect, perfect, perfective, evidential, resultative, imperfective, future, Chukchi, Alutor, Koryak
