This chapter introduces some of the definitions of the terms ‘case’ and ‘aspect’, namely that there are up to five different types of case (structural, lexical, semantic, inherent, and default) posited in the literature and two different types of aspect (lexical and grammatical). This chapter also briefly outlines the main claims presented in Chapters 3, 4, and 5 of the book.
