A Higher Order Extensional Framework for the Progressive

Journal of Semantics 27 (2):177-206 (2010)

This paper proposes an extensional event-based framework for the progressive aspect. The proposal differs from that of Parsons (1990) in that it does not have incomplete events in its base ontology but constructs ‘proxies’ for such events through certain sets of properties of complete events
