Bingo! I think that it is really important that anyone who wants to
understand what aspect is learn how aspect works in their native language.
I think that there has been a lot of unbalanced writing on the subject by
New Testament scholars who haven't really looked at how aspect works in
English, and treat it as a peculiar mystery found only in Greek and Hebrew.
