In the latest volume published by Brill in the Linguistic Biblical Studies series, Pang conducts a corpus study regarding Greek aspect and Aktionsart. He provides an extensive overview of definitions and recent methods. Several recent scholars have thought that certain contextual factors could reliably point to a particular Aktionsart when used in conjunction with the verbal aspect of the tense-form and the lexical item, but Pang shows that no reliable relationship exists between verbal aspect and Aktionsart, and concludes that Aktionsart is an effect of the interpretive process.
