    • Distribution of two semelfactives in Russian : -nu- and -anu- 

      Makarova, Anastasia; Kuznetsova, Julia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Russian semelfactive verbs formed with the suffix -nu- are well-known in the literature (Isachenko 1960; Maslov 1948, 1965; Zaliznjak & Šmelev 2000). However, the distribution between two semelfactive suffixes -nu- and -anuis less studied. Makarova & Janda (2009, 90) suggest that “there is no clear trend concerning the frequency of -nu- vs. -anu-”, so the nature of the distribution between the two ...
    • In Which Case Are Russians Afraid? Bojat’sja with Genitive and Accusative Objects 

      Nesset, Tore; Kuznetsova, Julia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      The present article investigates case usage with the verb bojat’sja ‘be scared’ in Russian. Many verbs with -sja never combine with objects in the accusative case. The verb bojat’sja historically was among them, but this verb is undergoing a shift and is currently used with both genitive and accusative objects. This study examines the parameters that motivate this change. Using data from the Russian ...

В следующем отклике рассматривается одно из важных отличий теории когнитивной ...
    • Russian ‘purely aspectual’ prefixes: Not so ‘empty’ after all? 

      Endresen, Anna; Janda, Laura Alexis; Kuznetsova, Julia; Lyashevskaya, Olga; Makarova, Anastasia; Nesset, Tore; Sokolova, Svetlana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Nearly two thousand perfective verbs in Russian are formed via the addition of so-called “empty prefixes” (čistovidovye pristavki) to imperfective base verbs. The traditional assumption that prefixes are semantically “empty” when used to form aspectual pairs is problematic because the same prefixes are clearly “non-empty” when combined with other base verbs. Though some scholars have suspected that ...
