Craig Blomberg on Aspect

After reading his review of Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek, I rather curious about what his view of the subject  is expressed plainly.

What I can gather is at least this much:

  • Blomberg prefers a three Aspect system of Perfective, Imperfective, Stative.
  • He considers Fanning to be closer to his perspective than Campbell.
  • He view tense as not being encoded morphologically – or more specifically, he prefers to relegate tense to pragmatics.

I’m really curious about what a fuller exposition would look like from him.
