Toward a Functional Definition of Markedness in Russian Aspect.
Swan, Oscar
Russian Language Journal, v33 n116 p36-43 Fall 1979
It is argued that in Russian verbs the perfect aspect is marked and the imperfect unmarked is wrong. For certain lexical classes, the imperfective rather than the perfective is marked. A systematic interrelationship among aspect, tense, and type of action is developed. (PMJ)
