Aspectuality is one of the universal temporal meanings found both in an aspect language and in a nonaspect language. The other temporal meanings are actionality and temporality. The close relationship has caused some grammarians conceive aspect and tense as the same concept (Comrie 1976; 1). Other grammarians such as Lyons (1977), Alieva (1992), and Verkuyl (1993) have also conceived the concept of aspectuality as one concept with different realizations. Beside the two groups, there are other grammarians such as Brinton (1988), Smith (1991) and Bache (1997) that have treated actionality and aspectuality as different concepts. Their argument was aimed to solve the problem of the confusing definitions of aspect and Aktionsart. Bache (1997; 12) even said that aspect, action, and tense should be kept distinct as separate categories.
