Aspect and Tense in Russian.
Terras, V.
Slavic and East European Journal, New Series v4 (18) p331-344 1960
Accepting the perfective aspect as the "marked" correlative of a true morphological correlation in the opposition of perfective:imperfective in Russian verb study, the author disregards non-systemic facts in order to concentrate on the aspect relations as they appear in "linear pairs". The author proceeds to describe the functions of the aspect category as they appear in the different forms of the finite and infinite verbs. Forms which do not allow for possible confusion in aspect and tense discrimination lead the writer to first examine the infinitive and the imperative. The present-future, preterite, and participle and gerunds are then examined with examples of grammatical application. (RL)
