Abstract:

The paper aims to demonstrate that the aorist participles active, when used as adjectives in combination with the verb be, take the role of a component of the ‘predicative’ syntactic entity (in a copula construction). We describe a simple algorithm for distinguishing between the aorist participles active which have become adjectives (and when combined with the verb be, form copula constructions), and the aorist participles active which remain in the group of the non-finite verb forms (and form periphrastic verb forms with the verb be). Further consideration is given to some other issues related to the aorist participles active.

Keywords:

aorist participle active, adjective, periphrastic verb forms, predicative, copula construction, perfective verb forms.
