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.
