An Uralic essive typological questionnaire
This introductory chapter presents a search into the realm of the essive markers indicating impermanent state in the Uralic languages. It turns out that full or even partial descriptions of the distribution of the essive markers in most Uralic languages are lacking. Overall studies of the essive in Uralic describing similarities and differences among the languages are not available. In order to fill this gap the chapter presents a typological questionnaire which makes the appropriate description and comparison of the distribution of the essive in the various Uralic languages possible.
