The jimam perfect in Nashta

Abstract : The Nashta verb system presents the well known Balkan feature, the “have” perfect construction. Other Balkan languages that share the feature are the Romanian and Aromanian dialects, Albanian, Judeo-Spanish, Greek (standard and dialects as spoken in Greece), standard Macedonian and, according to Georgiev and Asenova a “have” perfect is being grammaticalized in Bulgarian as well. Still, we have to consider the emergence of this feature in Nashta by examining the language contact, diffusion or internal parameters that could have been at the origin of it.
