Participle Passives and Passive Participles in Russian: Aspect
Abstract The paper is devoted to the structure and semantics of participle passives in Russian. Participle passive in Russian is the passive construction that includes a passive participle and the verb ‘to be’. There are two kinds of participle passives, namely, verbal passives and adjectival passives. The differences between them are usually explained by assuming that in the former case the verb ‘to be’ is an auxiliary that takes a VP as its argument, while the latter case involves the lexical verb ‘to be’ (V) and a PartP (or an AdjP).
