Perfective, Imperfective, and Iterative

Dear Mark(Wilson),

According to my basic grammars the three basic kinds of action are
Durative which represents the
action going on, Punctiliar or undefined and State of completion which
represents the action as complete.
Now Wallace gives for the three types of action Internal, External and
Perfective-Stative which I
believe along with his definitions makes things overly complicated and
very hard to understand.

Best Regards,
Harry Jones
