Northern Mansi uses reduplication to express a special aspectual content when the verbal prefix is duplicated. In this case, the sentences express that an event may not going to occur or that it has almost taken place (1-2). The reduplication of other parts of speech can also express this notion of “almost happening” (3-4). Furthermore, distributive numerals can be formed by the reduplication of cardinal numerals (5).
