Meeting Description:

The International Commission on Aspectology of the International Committee of Slavists (ICA ICS) and Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia supported by the Institute for Linguistic Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences (ILS RAS) announce the 7th International Aspectological Conference Interrelation between Aspect and Adjacent Categories.

The conference will be hosted by Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia, St Petersburg, 5-8 May 2020.
Please visit the Commission’s website at https://stl.univ-lille.fr/commission-daspectologie/ for programmes and publications from earlier conferences organised by the International Commission on Aspectology of the International Committee of Slavists.
The conference aims to discuss interrelation between the verb aspect and adjacent grammatical categories. As is known, the grammatical category of aspect in Slaviс languages has two peculiarities: (a) a highly developed polysemy of aspectual grammemes and (b) a close interrelation between the category of aspect and other verb categories. Thus, the discussion will focus largely on the ambiguity of aspect.

The conference welcomes papers that discuss the non-aspectual meaning and use of the perfective and the imperfective aspectual grammemes (temporal, modal, discursive, etc.), and the share of the “non-aspectual” component present in the semantics of the Slavic aspect. The latter is especially prominent in the imperfective forms, although it is not limited to these forms only.
Another relevant area of research to be presented is the interrelation between aspectual and non-aspectual grammemes within the system of the Slavic verb. This area includes a range of issues, i.e. limitations in expressing some grammemes in the context of others, semantic shifts that occur in certain grammeme combinations, etc. Although this area of research has consistently received attention from Slavists, nevertheless, it requires further investigation.

Although participants are encouraged to address the issues listed above in their conference papers, the subject matter of the conference may not be limited solely to the aforementioned topic areas.
