The negated imperative in Russian and other Slavic languages
Aspectual and modal meanings
This paper deals with the interaction of three categories: aspect, mood and negation. I will demonstrate how the presence of negation influences the aspectual choice in imperative forms in Slavic languages. The prohibitive, preventive and some other modal imperative meanings will be discussed. The following language processes may be of common typological interest: (1) The loss of the perfective aspect in negated imperative forms or the considerably reduced use thereof by comparison with indicative and positive imperative forms, (2) The development of special modal imperative meanings when using the negated perfective aspectual form.
