Russian impersonal constructions

Overview of the article published on SLO website:

In Russian, there are many constructions which do not require the use of a verb in a sentence. Such constructions often describe emotional or physical states in which Russian uses adverb-type words, usually ending -о (холодно, скучно, нужно, можно). These Russian constructions have no subject and are called impersonal constructions.
