I am very interested in the historical reasons for the lexical pairings
that occur in Russian verbs of motion and why they do not appear in other
Slavic languages like Serbo-croat.
Can anyone throw any light on their origins and do they exist anywhere
outside the Slavic languages? Can anyone suggest any studies, please?
