Garth, I meant "the nature of an action (or intrinsic duration), sort of
like aspect but lexically or semantically determined."

Specifically:
*Telicity
*dynamicity, and
*durativity.

It seems to me that a verb could be marked to indicate these qualties with
afixes, or perhaps with a special aktionsart word.

If one really wants to go to town, each of these aktionsarts could be
positive, negative or uncertain.
