Tundra Nenets intransitive verbs are divided into three classes: A-verbs, B-verbs and A&B-verbs, according to their compatibility with one of the two intransitive paradigms. This chapter investigates the Aktionsart principles that govern (1) a verb's placement in one of the classes; and (2) the choice between the two paradigms for A&B-verbs.

Keywords:   intransitive verbs, lexical classes, actional interpretation, Aktionsart interpretation, event homogeneity, phases of an event
