- n. Plural form of perfective.
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.
As an engineering physicist I have been taught to look at problems from many different perfectives and examine cause and effect in great detail, an approach I know you are intimately familiar with Brian.
