I started my doctoral studies at the University of Turku in August 2016.
The topic of my dissertation is the formation of aspectual pairs (like
delat´–sdelat´ ‘do’) for new verbs, for example
instagrammit´–zainstagrammit´. Why does this verb take the prefix za-
and not any other prefix to form perfective aspect? The hypothesis is
that semantics plays a role: the meaning of the verb shares some
semantic element(s) with the perfectivizing prefix. The plan is to study
new verbs and their aspectual correlates in the following areas:
standard/official language, Russian as a diaspora language, verbs
relating to new technologies and verbs in professional jargon.
