Brankačkec, Katja: Some Remarks on the Relationship Between Aspect and the Iterative in Sorbian


Lětopis Abstract 2011 2: Brankačkec, Katja: Some Remarks on the Relationship Between Aspect and the Iterative in Sorbian

This article summarises the situation of research on aspect in Sorbian with particular reference to Upper Sorbian. For this purpose, results achieved from research into Sorbian are set against more recent general Slavonic studies on aspect. Both the description in older Sorbian grammars is dealt with as well all the important contributions on aspect in modern Upper Sorbian. A comparison of these results with comparative Slavonic examinations of aspect, as well as with statements on the origins of Slavonic aspect highlights the fact that aspect in Sorbian with regard to the iterative behaves differently from Russian, but also from other West Slavonic languages. The specific role of the iterative is often only mentioned in passing in the works on aspect in Sorbian, and therefore is highlighted in this article.
