Abstract:
			
The articles in this collection discuss various problems in areas of
linguistics towards which important contributions have been made by
the distinguished Russian linguist A.V. Bondarko to whom the book is
dedicated.

Three groups of articles can be distinguished. The first group
concerns the sphere of aspectuality - Aspect and Aktionsart. Comments
on the relation between these two concepts are given by Comrie. One
also finds here a discussion of the use of verbs of several
lexico-grammatical classes: the multiplicative and semelfactive
Aktionsart (Birjulin) and non-actional verbs of existence
(Voeikova). Various aspects of the reciprocal meaning are discussed:
in a general typological perspective (Geniusen and Nedjalkov) and in
relation to Russian reflexive verbs (Knjazev). (These articles can be
classified in the first group because of the existence of a reciprocal
Aktionsart.)

In the second group questions of the functioning of verbal categories
are examined. In the articles by Lehmann and Tommola special attention
is given to the interaction between the category of aspect and
aspectually significant elements of the context. Mehlig discusses some
problems from the sphere of the so-called general-factual meaning of
the imperfective and Poupynin deals with the problem of invariancy
with regard to the passive variety of the perfective.

The third group of articles is dedicated to the field of taxis,
i.e. phenomena on the intersection of aspectuality and temporality. A
general discussion of taxis, its definition and typological questions
is given by Xrakovsky. The narrative functions of the imperfective
aspect are studied by Kozintseva. Zorikhina-Nilsson presents a
contrastive analysis of some functions of the Russian perfective
gerund and its equivalents in Swedish and Barentsen discusses problems
of temporal relations in complex sentences with verbs of perception.
