Brown, Sue (Harvard University); THE SYNTAX OF NEGATION IN RUSSIAN: A

This book offers a Minimalist analysis of certain syntactic phenomena
in Russian associated with negation. These phenomena include the
distribution of morphologically negative words and the pattern of
Negative Concord they exhibit (whereby multiple occurrences of
negative words are interpreted as only one instance of negation); the
Genitive of Negation (the case marking on the internal argument of
negated verbs); expletive negation (formal negation without negative
content), and negated Yes/No questions (including a previously
undiscussed pattern of expletive negation effects observed in certain
types of Yes/No questions). The end result is a formalization of the
status of negation within the phrase structure of Russian that not
only contributes relevant Slavic data to the pool of negation data,
but also sheds new light on the syntactic expression of negation
universally. Other languages discussed include Italian, Catalan,
English, Southern English, and West Flemish. One chapter is devoted to
outlining the Minimalist Program itself.

Subject:  Interaction between Aspect and Voice in Russian

INTERACTION BETWEEN ASPECT AND VOICE IN RUSSIAN
Youri A. Poupynin, Institute of Linguistic Studies, St.Petersburg
	
	The Russian linguistics is gradually concentrated on the analysis of
the Russian verb categories as a certain system. The study  of  the
tense and the  aspect  in  their  connection already became traditional.
The present work aims  especially  to research  the Russian aspect and
voice in  the  mutual connections.  The  book contains three parts. The
interrelation of  the  aspect  and  the voice in the grammatical system
of Russian  (i.e.  in  the  verb paradigm) is to be considered in  the
first  part  "Towards  the problem of connections  of grammatical
categories:  aspect  and voice". The first part includes the following
chapters:  "Aspect and  voice  in  the hierarchy  of  Russian  verbal
categories", "Symmetry and asymmetry  in  the  paradigmatic
intersection  of  aspect and voice", "Connections between the
terminativity and the transitivity", "A field approach in the study of
connections  of grammatical categories".
   The  second  and  the  third  parts   are   devoted   to   the
functional-semantic interaction of the aspect and the voice.  The
following approach to prove the  functional-semantic interaction of
grammatical categories is proposed in the book: one of the two given
categories has to  be  treated  as  a  source  of semantic backgrounds
whereas the second category has to be treated  as  a source of the
semantic functions. The  fact  of  the interaction would be established
if the  semantic  functions  of the  second category change (are
restricted, specified, expanded etc.)  going through a certain semantic
background represented of  the  first category. The high syntactic
significance of the voice  makes  it to be considered as a source of the
semantic backgrounds  (active and passive) and, accordingly, the aspect
has to be considered as a source of the semantic functions.
  The second part deals with the imperfective functions  on  the
passive  and  active  background.   Because   in   many Russian
aspectological studies the semantic functions of the imperfective and
the perfective are mainly  illuminated  on  the  material  of active
forms, the special attention is given  to  functioning  of passive
forms, while examples with the active forms are attracted for the
contrastive analysis. The second part  includes chapters devoted to
specific features of the particular  meanings of  the imperfective
aspect in the passive voice: meaning of the process, iterative meaning,
qualitative meaning etc.
   The third part includes chapters contained the  study  of  the
specific features of the particulars meanings of  the  perfective aspect
in the passive voice:  meaning  of  the  completed  event, meaning  of
the  "vivid  exemplification",  summative meaning. Restriction or
expansion  of  different  aspectual functions  in passive constructions
(in comparison with  active constructions) are especially noted and
discussed.
