In English grammar, an aspect is a verb form (or category) that indicates time-related characteristics, such as the completion, duration, or repetition of an action. (Compare and contrast with tense.) When used as an adjective, it's aspectual. The word comes from Latin, meaning "how [something] looks"

The two primary aspects in English are the perfect (sometimes called perfective) and the progressive (also known as the continuous form)
