Summary/Abstract: The article reviews certain instances of syncretism in the paradigm of the Bulgarian verb, characteristic of analytical forms such as носил/гледал съм/си/(е)/… и носел/гледал съм/ си/(е)/…. The focus falls on Czech-Bulgarian asymmetries in the area of such verb forms established on the basis of contrastive analysis of the Bulgarian forms and their functional equivalents in Czech. An algorithm is proposed for the the optimal translation of such Bulgarian forms into Czech.
