Meeting Description: Verbal Prefixes and Particles. Empirical research in grammatical aspect and lexical semantics

The prefixes (preverbs, coverbs etc.) and particles (adpositions, intransitive prepositions etc.) associated with verbal constructions, such as those in the Slavic and Germanic languages, represent one of the most complex fields of linguistics. At once central to the aspectual system and verbal semantics, understanding their interdependent role in both the grammar and the lexicon is crucial to language description.

This theme session seeks to bring together empirical linguists working in the field of verbal prefixes and particles in Slavic and Germanic languages. The theme session is open to any theoretical orientation but will focus on empirical research.
