This chapter provides a theoretical basis for the evaluation of the aspectual differences in Russian. It introduces and discusses the concept of reference time. It also presents the unified theory of reference time proposed in Reinhart (1986, 2000). It shows that this theory paves the way for clearly stating and formalizing the distinctions between different levels of aspectual information.
