It seems that two so different Russian thinkers as Nikolay Chernyshevsky and Vladimir Solovyov couldn’t have the common ideas, but this statement is wrong, Solovyov, who was thirty years younger than Chernyshevsky and according to his own statement refers to the opposite ideological camp, wrote the article “The first step to a positive aesthetic”, in which the philosopher has supported the concept of aesthetic Chernyshevsky, calling it “the first word of the true aesthetics”.
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.
