Sentence level example (25) is perfective, for we cannot say *when she coughed during the whole concert, all the lights suddenly went off10. Not every layer of nested aspectuality needs a formal expression in syntax. e. the fact that I and Ρ must alternate in the semantic structure, the presence of a layer can sometimes be inferred from the formal expressions of the neighbouring layers. This is the case with sentences (26)-(28) (26) John drove to town for two hours . (27) The sheriff of Nottingham jailed Robin Hood for four years .

This seems to be the case: the meaning of (21) is something like 'every evening he spent some time studying at the libray'. The delimitative P-level is inferred from the two I's, one of which is expressed by the imperfective verb, the other by the frequency adverbial veterami 'in the evenings'. I assume that the semantic principles of aspectual nesting are truly universal though the formal expression of nested aspects differs from language to language. 34 LINDSTEDT Notes 1. In what follows I shall loosely speak of aspects though an expression like value of aspectuality would be more precise at least in cases where there is no grammaticalized opposition.
