The definition by Comrie is considered the definitive definition of verbal aspect and is worth citing in full:
\begin{quotation}
-Aspect is not concerned with relating the time of the situation to any other time-point, but rather with the internal temporal constituency of the one situation; one could state the difference as on e between situatoin-internal time (aspect) and situation-external time (tense).\footnote{\cite[5]{Comrie1976}.}

While this is taken as definitive, it does not convey all the possible meanings of the term aspect. Specifically, aspect is bifurcated by linguists into to groups `grammatical aspect' and \textgerman{\emph{Aktionsarten}}. The first is derived from the prefix aspectual markers in OCS where aspect is grammatically defined (perfective/imperfective pairs of verbs).\footnote{insert footnote here} The second comes from linguists attempts at categorizing aspect as applied to other Western European languages. Many have attempted to list all the categories of \textgerman{\emph{Aktionsarten}} but a definitive list, as is similar to much in aspectology, has yet to reach a scholarly concensus. However, a good working list can be created without offending too many:
