Since iterative means repeated action, I am wondering whether the
imperfective aspect would not be most suitable for an iterative sense? Of
course, imperfective has other uses, but given the right context, I would
expect a Greek imperfect tense. Hs anyone studied contexts where the
iterative sense is clear from context?
