> Dear colleagues,
> 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)?
