An extract from Osip Mandelstam's biography.
This paper examines verb forms at the end of lines in poetry of Osip Mandelstam and Boris Pasternak. It is thoroughly explored how the position at the end of a line determines the choice of a verb form and, more importantly, how morphological characteristics of a verb form depend on the position of the last stressed syllable in a verse.
The present article continues the investigation of the Soqotri verbal system undertaken by the Russian-Soqotri fieldwork team. The article focuses on the so-called “weak” and “geminated” roots in the basic stem. The investigation is based on the analysis of full paradigms (perfect, imperfect and jussive) of more than 170 “weak” and “geminated” Soqotri verbs.
