Russian Perfective Verbs







[Print-Friendly Version] (pdf file)


Russian Perfective Verbs refer to those actions which are complete, or one-off in nature. For example - "I wrote a letter (to completion)" is a perfective action, while "I was writing a letter" is an imperfective action, as it does not denote completing the action.
