The accepted definitions of verbal aspect (the idea of terminativeness or соmpletiveness of the perfective aspect) are subjected to criticism, though full credit is given to V. V. Gurevič who tried to present the problem of aspect in a new light (by contrasting sequentiveness for the perfective aspect with nоn-sequentiveness for the imperfective aspect). A new definition of aspectuality in general and of verbal aspect in particular is offered.
