Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningfagfællebedømt

In this article, lexical aspectual types in West Greenlandic are investigated in the five aspectual
types, states, achievements, semelfactives, activities and accomplishments. It is shown
that derivational verbalizing affixes include aspectual type congruent with the lexical aspect
and how the aspectual type is changed in West Greenlandic. It is also shown how the grammatical
aspectual affixes change the lexical aspect as well, and the ordering of the affixes
is described shortly.
