Message 2: Polish verbs

From: Ma�gorzata Rassak <>
Subject: Polish verbs

Dear Sirs,

I am writing a thesis on Polish 'czasowniki dokonane' and 'czasowniki
niedokonane' in comparison with perfective and imperfective verbs in
English. I am keenly interested in various ways of rendering aspect
(on a word- or sentence-level) in both languages, especially English.

Could you help me with possible bibliography, internet links and
particular hints that would facilitate my work? I would appreciate it
very much.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Ma�gorzata Rassak
