Meeting Description: Although achievements have a safe place in Vendler's (1957) particular quadripartite conception of the aspectual categories, they may nevertheless be less stable than accomplishments, activities, or states in their linguistic and/or ontological status. On the one hand, achievements arguably exhibit a tendency to slip into accomplishments; on the other hand, they tend to be preludes to states or activities. Also, whereas activities are generally considered to be dynamic, and accomplishments dynamic and telic, these two properties are still controversial for achievements. However, despite their often disputed status, achievements tend to appear in one guise or another in most aspectual classifications.
