Dr. Wheeler Outlines:
<no change> <change>
This whole topic has my head spinning. Aktionsart was not a catagory
of instruction when I studied Greek 25 years ago. So in simple
English, I would like to try to exemplify this outline using the verb
STATE ~ I AM a runner.
ACTION ~ I RUN.
ACTIVITY ~ I am a person who engages in the activity of RUNNING.
[...who RUNS. ??]
PERFORMANCE ~ I RAN that race.
ACCOMPLISHMENT ~ I have been RUNNING that race for years.
ACHIEVEMENT ~ I RAN that race yesterday.
Dr. Wheeler, would you please correct and complete this
exemplification for me? I am totally stuck in the mud here. I am not
getting this at all...
Thank-you for your help.
