Phase Verbs:
	This notion has been developed by Coseriu (e.g., in
1976, _Das romanische Verbalsystem_. Tuebingen: Narr). He
gives the following definition (p. 103): "Bei der Kategorie
der Phase handelt es sich um ein Verhaeltnis zwischen dem
Augenblick der Betrachtung und dem Grad der Entwicklung
(des Ablaufes) des betrachteten Verbalvorgangs." He
distinguishes the following phases: imminent/ingressive,
inceptive, progressive, continuative, regressive, conclusive,
and egressive.

Ad 'Phase Verbs' (Jeroen Wiedenhof's inquiry):

'Phasenaktionsarten' were one of Hermann Hirt's divisions of "aspect"
[Aktionsarten], see Idg Gramm. 1921-37 vol VI:227ff; he may have gotten
it from M. Deutschbein 1920 (Engl. Stud. 54:80ff). 'Phasenverb' seems a
natural extension of this term.
