Subject: Perfective Morpheme


In a number of languages (e.g. Slavic group, Hungarian, Lithuanian, etc.),
there is a grammatical distinction between perfective and imperfective
aspect. However, these languages do not have a true perfective morpheme,
whose only function is to change aspect to perfective; instead, they have a
number of prefixes that make a verb perfective, and each prefix has
additional, other than perfective, meaning (Aktionsart or spatial).
The question is, does any language have a true perfective morpheme? If yes,
is it inflectional?

Dear Sir or Madam,

This is Hongshan Zuo from China. Currently I'm in the first year of the
Ph.D. program, specializing in SLA. I'm interested in
L2 processing of idioms, but just suffer from a lack of references. Does
anybody have something to say?
