Aspect is characteristic of verbs, and it exists in the all-Russian verbs, and it is considered to be among the verb categories at the same time. This verb category describes the course of action over time and its relationship to whether the action has been completed. It also divides the verbs into two as perfective and imperfective according to the task in the sentence. The verbs form a pair of finished and unfinished aspects by taking prefix or suffix or turning into different forms. However, not all verbs form a pair of aspects.
