A frame-based morphology-semantics interface in LTAG: A case study in Russian prefixation

In my dissertation I aim to provide syntax-semantics interface for dealing with some of important phenomena in English and Russian using Frame Semantics and LTAG. I am mostly interested in analyzing verbal semantics, including alternations and telicity-dependent behavior. I am also working on Russian verb morphology, planning to extend syntax-semantics interface to morphology-semantics interface in the part, where morphology is regular. In this area I am searching for the correct frame semantics of Russian verbal affixes, studying possible and impossible combinations of them and meanings of resulting verbs.
