- n. Plural form of imperfective.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Another translator may reassign the perfectives, imperfectives, and present participles in altogether different patterns, to form a different arrangement of foreground and background, shading the narrative in a different way.
We oddly expect the total reverse: subjectives yielding imperfectives and objectives yielding perfectives.
My cursed snag to my subjective-objective theory remains that subjectives are expected to yield atelic verbs (ie. verbs without completed goal) or imperfectives (ie. continuous actions or states)1.
