An interesting case-study in addtion to those already mentioned:
Yu, Alan C.L. 2003. 'Pluractionality in Chechen'. Natural Language Semantics 11. 289-321.

Bert Kouwenberg in his huge book on the Akkadian verb (2010) notes that “Verbal plurality or event plurality refers to a quantification of the event or the process expressed by the verb, i.e., whether it refers to a single, a repeated, a protracted, or a more intensive occurrence.”
In Akkadian, “verbal plurality” is rendered by two derived stems of the verb, one of which does not seem to have any meaning other than plurality.
Do you know of any recent reference works on verbal plurality, or of interesting case-studies outside Semitic (and Afrasian in general)?
