Types of diatheses in Russian

2011. № 1 (21), 47-76


This study attempts to distinguish the main types of diatheses in Russian, viewed from a typological perspective. A multidimensional approach to the classification of diatheses is taken, so that some classes of diatheses that were obtained overlap with each other. The study covers not only the diatheses of transitive action verbs but also the diatheses of other semantic classes of predicates.
