Sheyanova M.
This paper classifies the semantic inventory and describes the morphosyntactic characteristics of specialized converbs in Mehweb a lect of the Dargwa group of the East Caucasian (Nakh-Daghestanian) language family. The data for this description were collected during a field trip to the village of Mehweb (Megeb). For Mehweb I describe converbs which have the following meaning: anteriority, immediacy, inceptivity, simultaniety, posteriority, hypothetical conditionality, counterfactuality, concessivity (and another meaning close to concessivity), causality, purpose and graduality.
