Those interested in the history of this discussion and how Ewald's ideas
about Hebrew aspect and verbal inflection became so influential should
read Vincent DeCaen's investigation of the matter:

"Ewald and Driver on Biblical Hebrew 'Aspect': Anteriority and the
Orientalist Framework". Zeitschrift für Althebraistik 9.2: 129-151, 1996.

Also relevant from the same author:

"The Syntactic Argument for the Waw-Consecutive in Old Aramaic". Vetus
Testamentum 51.3: 381-385, 2001.
