George, I was going to ask exactly the same question that Noam asked, and
the reason being was this:------- Preterite is a simple past tense form that
is not marked for aspect ------.
Based upon the meaning of 'aspect' I find this definition of preterite
somewhat confusing. Regards Chris.
I guess I would disagree with that definition.
Also, there is more to aspect than what I mentioned. It is a little complicated to explain, and I am still working on ways to convey it to beginning students. It's a prickly one.
Does anyone else have any good simple explanation of aspect?
