47 Uses of the progressive marker

This feature is described more fully in chapter 47.


An overt marker which fulfills the function of the progressive, i.e. which refers to ongoing activities, often fulfills other functions as well. Among them are current states, habitual situations, and future situations. This feature asks which of these three other functions a progressive marker may fulfill.
