abstract

Current relevance is recognised cross-linguistically as a prototypical value of the perfect that does not exist as a grammatical category in Northern Slavic languages such as Polish and Russian. The ancient Slavic perfect tense developed into a general past in these languages, therefore the current relevance is made today by possessive resultative constructions that are grammaticalized only in Northern Russian dialects. The present paper investigates also other means of conveying the current relevance value in Polish and Russian: perfectives of telic verbs and delimitatives of atelic verbs if used under focus in spoken language, as well as locative constructions with the meaning of ‘being after the event’.
