The Progressive in English and Japanese.
Language Sciences, v18 n1-2 p265-75 Jan-Apr 1996
Compares and contrasts the progressive constructions in English and Japanese, concluding that whereas an English sentence of this type refers to a dynamic state, this need not be the case in Japanese. The article argues that the progressive operators in both English (be-ing) and Japanese (-teiru) can be characterized as stativizer. (18 references) (Author/CK)
