Hello everyone,
 
 I'm a PhD student and I am interested in relationships between
language and music with emphasis on influences of musical education on
language perception and production. I will appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance.

Message 2: Aspect in the Baltic Languages

Subject: Aspect in the Baltic Languages

Dear Linguists,

Can anybody give me any information on how Perfective/Imperfective
Aspect is expressed in the Baltic Indo-European languages (Lithuanian
and Latvian)? Is it expressed via the use of a prefix to indicate
Perfectivity, as in Russian? Or, since I know that Latvian, at least,
uses its genitive case with Partitive function, is the aspectual
distinction indicated, as in the Baltic Finnic languages, by an
Accusative/Partitive genitive alternation? Or do these languages use a
mixture of both? So far, the information I have been able to find
relating to this matter has been contradicatory, so I would be very
grateful if anyone could clear this up.

Thanks,
Rose Thomas
