French, Japanese, Dutch or Indonesian may also show the progressive aspect of an
action in the passive voice. This aspect is not available in higher degree of
integration like adjectives and agent nouns. I'm wondering whether the reason
is that the aspect of the verb is usually not transferred into the word derived
from that verb through integration. Integration seems to me like a 'filter'
excluding aspects except for participals and for subordination sometime.
