This volume, originally published in Russian, combines data from a wide range of languages, meticulously analyzed, with a sophisticated theoretical apparatus capable of isolating the most important syntactic and semantic parameters and of drawing those generalizations that are most significant from a cross-linguistic perspective. Many ideas which are at best only hinted at in earlier literature – such as the precise relation among resultative, perfect, and stative, or correlations between resultative and passive voice – are here for the first time stated precisely and given a firm foundation by means of detailed exemplification from a wide range of languages.

“I believe firmly that the present volume, like its predecessors, is essential reading for every linguist interested in universals and typology, if not indeed for every linguist irrespective of subspecialization, and this English edition at last makes this work available to a truly international linguistic readership.”
