- n. Abstract verb refers to a verbal aspect in verbs of motion that is multidirectional (as opposed to unidirectional), an indirect motion, or a repeated action or series of actions (instead of a single, completed action). Abstract verbs are always imperfective in aspect, even if they have prefixes normally associated with the perfective aspect.
