OBSERVATIONS ON ONE SPECIFIC GROUP OF VERBS IN MODERN BULGARIAN
MetadataShow full item record
The paper examines the question of the aspectual nature and functional specifics of one group of Bulgarian verbs formed via the formant -va from singe act perfectives with the suffix -n- (cf. bodvam < bodna, migvam < migna, tropvam < tropna, etc.). Emphasis is placed on the peculiarities in the building of the aspectual "triads", in which these verbs take part, while the important role of the initial multiplicatives (cf. boda, migam, tropam, etc.) is highlighted. The conclusion is reached that in semantic and functional respect, the analyzed verbal forms are grammatical iteratives, which are realized mainly in non-actual use.
