On tense and irrealis marking in triclausal constructions (and what distinguishes them from biclausal constructions)
, Linguistics 2018 Vol. 56 No. 1 P. 163-206
In this article, I consider Russian triclausal constructions (complex sentences including three clauses, one main and two dependent). More specifically, I analyze constructions where C1 (the main clause) embeds C2 (an embedded clause), while C2 in turn embeds C3. In the paper, I mainly concentrate on sentences where C2 is a clause with an unreal ...

The analogues of tense interpretation in Russian embedded clauses: absolute vs. relative modality, absolute vs. relative aspect
, Компьютерная лингвистика и интеллектуальные технологии 2020 Vol. дополнительный том No. 19 (26) P. 1065-1077
The paper adresses parallels between tense, aspect and modality marking in Russian embedded clauses. It is widely known that tense forms of embedded verbs can be interpreted relatively or absolutely, and in some cases, the relative and absolute use seem to be in free variation. It turns out that the interpretation of modality and aspect ...

This volume is a contribution to the typology of the category of aspect. Its aim is bringing forward new empirical data from languages not yet (widely) covered in typological aspectual investigations and to start or broaden their typological discussion. The articles in the paper are grouped in two sections. The first section is an account ...

This talk provides an analysis for the functioning of the temporal distance in past category which has emerged in Gban (South Mande). The category consists of three subcategories: hodiernal (“today’s past”; default interpretation ‘(earlier) today’), hesternal (“yesterday’s past”; default interpretation ‘yesterday’) and remote (default interpretation ‘the day before yesterday or earlier’). When influenced by a ...

Cross-linguistic data suggest that the grammatical categories of tense and aspect are not generally impaired in individuals with aphasia (see Bastiaanse et al., 2011 for a review). Rather, and more specifically, verb forms expressing reference to the past or conveying perfective semantics are more impaired than verb forms expressing reference to the non-past (present or future) or conveying ...

Tense-Aspect Abstraction in Russian-Speaking Children in the Early Stages of Native Language Acquisition
, , Tense-Aspect Abstraction in Russian-Speaking Children in the Early Stages of Native Language Acquisition / НИУ ВШЭ. Series WP BRP "Linguistics". 2013. No. WP BRP 01/LNG/2013.
Children, while acquiring their native language, move from linking all their utterances to the “here and now” to more abstract speech structures. The categorical situation reflected in children’s speech develops as they gain more speech experience and as their language system and communicative competencies become established. The transition from the semantics of temporal localization to ...

The semantics of verbal categories in Nakh-Daghestanian languages: Tense, aspect, evidentiality, mood and modality
Leiden : Brill, 2018
The Caucasus is the place with the greatest linguistic variation in Europe. The present volume explores this variation within the tense, aspect, mood, and evidentiality systems in the languages of the North-East Caucasian (or Nakh-Daghestanian) family. The papers of the volume cover the most challenging and typologically interesting features such as aspect and the complicated ...

Взаимодействие временной референции и вида в русском языке: данные пациентов с афазией и здоровых испытуемых

Многочисленные кросслингвистические данные свидетельствуют о том, что при афазии специфически нарушена референция к прошлому: глагольные формы, отсылающие к прошедшему времени (писал) понимаются и порождаются пациентами с афазией значимо хуже, чем глагольные формы, отсылающие к непрошедшему, настоящему или будущему, времени (пишет; Bastiaanse et al., 2011). Этот эффект наблюдается вне зависимости от средств, с помощью которых временнáя ...

In this paper, I explore the constraints on the distribution of the perdurative prefix pro- in Russian. Applying several diagnostics proposed by Tatevosov (2009; 2013), I show that the perdurative pro- is a “selectionally restricted” prefix associated with an additional restriction: it can combine with a predicate built on a secondary imperfective stem only under ...

After an introductory chapter that provides an overview to theoretical issues in tense, aspect, modality and evidentiality, this volume presents a variety of original contributions that are firmly empirically-grounded based on elicited or corpus data, while adopting different theoretical frameworks. Thus, some chapters rely on large diachronic corpora and provide new qualitative insight on the ...

Voice, transitivity and tense/aspect: Directionality of change in Indo-European (Evidence from Greek and Vedic)

The aim of this article is to examine the directionality of change in Voice in relation to Tense/Aspect, foremost based on evidence from Greek as well as additional evidence from Early Vedic. Starting with the hypothesis that in (standard) Proto-Indo-European a number of innovations resulted in the introduction of some elements of the Perfect-Stative inflection into the Present ...

Actionality (also referred to by labels such as “lexical aspect” or “aktionsart”) is the semantic dimension that encodes the constituent phases and boundaries of situations. Despite its central role in aspectual interpretation, careful language-specific descriptions and typological surveys of actional systems have been rare thus far. In this introduction, we describe the steps that lead ...

I examine the use of tense and aspect in constructions with the verbs zastavit’ / zastavljat’ ‘make’ and pozvolit’ / pozvoljat’ ‘let, allow’. I also include the verb delat’ / sdelat ‘make’ in my analysis, though this verb has special syntactic and semantic characteristics. The striking ...

This study considers the use of the subjunctive in universal conditional concession (UCC) clauses of the type Kto by ni prishel, vsekh puskali (‘Whoever would come was admitted’). In these contexts, the use of the subjunctive cannot be explained by the irrealis component of its semantics, because it can be substituted with the indicative and apparently introduces real ...

Time reference in Indo-European languages is marked on the verb. With tensed verb forms, the speaker can refer to the past (wrote, has written), present (writes, is writing) or future (will write). Reference to the past through verb morphology has been shown to be particularly vulnerable in agrammatic aphasia (Bastiaanse, 2008; Yarbay Duman & Bastiaanse, ...

Reference to a time frame in which an event takes place can be done by verb inflection. If the time frame (past, present, future) is set by a temporal adverb, the verb inflection should correspond (yesterday he walk. ed; today he walk. s).
