Aspect: aspect

Aspect

Aspect is a feature of verbs mainly that specifies duration of the action in time, whether the action has been completed etc.

In Pomak, as in other slavic languages, aspect is an inherent lexical feature of verbs that classifies them in two large categories: imperfective verbs

(imperfect aspect) and perfective verbs (perfect aspect).

Imp: imperfect aspect

Imperfective verbs denote an action/event with no internal telic point.

Examples

Perf: perfect aspect

Perfective verbs denote an action/event with an internal telic point.

Examples

The following combinations of tense and aspect features are available for Pomak:

In Pomak, iteration of an event in the past may be described from both an atelic and a telic point of view, as follows:

Prog: progressive aspect

Atelic point of view: the description focuses on the (durative nature of the) iteration.

Examples

Iter: iterative aspect

Telic point of view: the description focuses on the telic events in the iteration.
