Example text

Comrie 1976:49) One of the linguistic tests that has been extensively adopted to determine dynamicity is the progressive test proposed by Vendler (1967). The progressive only applies to situations that have successive stages, as in (4a). As states are homogeneous and do not have successive stages,6 they are normally incompatible with the progressive, as shown in (4b): (4) a. Yvonne was moving about upstairs. b. *She was knowing the answer. 41 42 Aspect in Mandarin Chinese It has been argued that stative situations are excluded from the progressive because their meaning is already necessarily continuous by nature, and the progressive would be superXuous (Galton 1984:71).

The perfective/imperfective distinction is independent of the closure type of a situation. The second confusion is best explained with reference to Zhang (1995). ” In other words, perfective and imperfective notions are considered as “linguistic representations of the aspectual conceptualisations of boundedness and unboundedness” (Zhang ibid:117). Situations that have properties of boundedness are perfective while those that have properties of unboundedness are imperfective 27 28 Aspect in Mandarin Chinese (ibid:32).

He has arrived. b. He has been to Australia. c. He has lived here all his life. (PFV) (PFV) (IPFV) A complete situation normally consists of three internal phases: beginning (the initial endpoint), middle (the duration) and end (the Wnal endpoint) (cf. Comrie 1976:18). When a situation is viewed from an external perspective, it is gathered in its entirety.
