Hi Chris!
    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?
