    finding perfectives

    What's a good way to find perfective forms? For example I can't find the perfectives for подражать and дразнить. I've looked on gramota.ru, dic.academic.ru, yandex and diclib.com.
    Thanks

    I am not sure that there are general rules. At least I don't know any one.

    "подражать" has no perfective forms. Use "изобразить", "сымитировать".
    "дразнить" - "подразнить" (to tease for a while), "раздразнить" (to make excited by teasing), "задразнить" (to make exhausted by teasing), "поддразнить" (to banter).

    PS Here, in the last item there are two perfective forms.
    http://dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enc2p/232346
    Also they are at:
    http://ru.wiktionary.org/wiki/дразнить
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
