OK, thanks. I'm still definitely a beginner at this Aspect stuff. I have a note I made for myself for Hebrew that says "Eventives and Transitives tend to overlap a lot, but are not synonymous". I guess I was partly coming at it from the POV that, while I didn't know if it was a lexical aspect, I thought it was a lexical feature which it might be useful to record along with the others, especially if these are being saved in some sort of table where the results can be selected out.
Am I still right in assuming that his idea of cancellable and non-cancellable attributes is good, though?
