English Particles, Russian Prefixes and Prepositional Phrases
This book is based on the research of verbal prefixes§in Slavic languages and Germanic particles carried§out at Tromsø University under supervision of Peter§Svenonius. It offers a comparative analysis of the§syntactic behavior of English particles and Russian§prefixes in prepositional phrases. It concludes that§these elements exhibit a lot of similarities and§occupy the same position in the syntactic structure.§Apart from studying particles and prefixes, this work§also provides a thorough analysis of prepositions§cross-linguistically, focusing mainly on Russian and§English. The research presents extensive data on§Russian prefixed verbs and prepositions which are§further correlated to English particles. It is§written in a clear language and meant for an§audience with some knowledge of linguistics.
