Aha. The names of the aspects are a bit confusing.
Durative is often contrasting with punctual, but
I guess it's okay to use. Other alternatives could
be continuative or progressive (like English).
The "completed event" aspect is most often called
"perfective" and I would call the "basic" aspect
You can call the aspects anything you want, oc. I'm
just making some suggestions. :)
