Possible and Impossible Cases of Possessive Perfect

Extract



Abstract This article discusses the possessive perfect construction, which is not only found in North and North West Russian dialects, but also in Standard Russian, though in the latter, it looks different. The data from Standard Russian is not so straightforward as in North Russian dialects, but part of it persuasively shows signs of possessive perfect. It also seems that the construction in question is not attested when the past passive participle carries the superlexical cumulative prefix na-. The paper makes an attempt at looking at the reasons of such a restriction.
