The article is devoted to the study of the category of duration and continuity of verb action in
the Russian language system. The category investigated in the article is not actual for the Russian
language and has a limited expression in it. However, it is presented in the language on the lexical
and grammatical level only for some pairs of verbs having the meaning of movement. The study
showed that native Russian speakers learn and understand the category of duration and continuity of
verb action only because of the practice of daily speech communication. The fact of expressing this
category, which is relevant in Russian only for some verbs, indicates that it is possible to overcome
the restriction imposed on the language system in terms of duration and continuity of action. The
expression of this category breaks the private logic of language and contradicts the existence of the main grammatical categories of the Russian verb system. Analysis of the language material made it
possible to establish the fact of fundamental incomplete expression of the category of duration and
continuity of verb action. The author concluded that going beyond the boundaries of existing logic
in language contradicts the basic way of expressing verb action, on the one hand; and on the other
hand, does not contradict the capabilities of language and does not destroy the language system.
