Following an overview of time intervals in the clause, this chapter tackles the appropriate characterization of divisibility — the requirement of durative adverbs which can measure any of these times. The flexible view of temporal modification offers a natural account of a variety of novel phenomena and a coherent view of earlier accounts of durative modification.

Keywords:   durative adverbs, time intervals, divisibility, stativity, maximal events
