For an Hour or So: A Corpus Analysis of Diminutive Temporal Adverbials with Delimitative Nouns in Russian
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Prior research has argued that the morphology of Russian verbal aspect parallels nominal morphology in many ways. This thesis uses data from the Russian National Corpus to extend that analysis, arguing that the functions of the delimitative prefix po- and the functions of nominal diminutive markers overlap significantly.
