"Applicative" is the term used for valency-increasing operations adding an object to a verb's argument structure. Many Slavic verbal prefixes can act as applicatives introducing a direct or, more rarely, an indirect or oblique object. The entry gives an overview of the syntactic and semantic properties of constructions with applicative prefixes across Slavic and discusses the relation between valency-related and aspectual functions of verbal prefixes.
