I was right, I was right! About the Swahili thing. And the telicity, and the role of the object marker. So cool. I feel like I know a secret. A secret that only me, probably my teacher at this point since I'm sure she figured out what I was getting at with those judgments I was asking for, and of course millions of native speakers, know. But still! It's sorta like a discovery! I could write a paper about it! Several, even.

And, so, it gives me another test for aspectual class, too. But more on that later. Maybe. Hope you don't find it too suspenseful.
