Удинский перфект: анализ употреблений в параллельном корпусе
The paper focuses on certain affinities between the verbal systems of Udi – a Nakh-Daghestanian language of northern Azerbaijan, and Azerbaijani – a dominant Turkic language of the area, which has been in contact with Udi for several centuries. Among the features being considered are the opposition between the aorist and the perfect, the existence of two future tenses (one of which is an “old present”), the “young” present tense going back to the locative form of the infinitive, etc. Some of the cases undoubtedly represent the Azerbaijani influence on Udi (cf. the borrowed conditional enclitic -sa), while some of the attested similarities may represent either contact-induced or independent development.
