Dear Randall,

For the record: I would like to emphasize that it is not my 
responsibility that this thread has stopped but yours. Participants 
in a discussion can define basic concepts differently, but a basic 
requirement for a meaningful discussion is that all parts give their 
definitions. You have not wanted to give your definition of the 
imperfective aspect and you have not wanted to answer my questions 
regarding your definition of the perfective aspect that I found to be 
unclear. Last year we had a similar situation on b-greek, when you 
also did not want to give your definition and the thread stopped. I 
do not understand your reasons, but it is of course your right to 
keep your definitions for yourself. If you change your mind, the 
thread can continue.

Best regards,

Rolf Furuli
University of Oslo
