From the Grammaticalization of Viewpoint Aspect to the Grammaticalization of Situation Aspect
As illustrated in chapter (1), in present-day Hungarian basically all accomplishment and achievement predicates denoting a delimited change of state or change of location have a verbal particle. In Standard Hungarian, there is still a handful of verbs left which are ambiguous with respect to situation aspect; they can be interpreted both as atelic process predicates and as telic accomplishment or achievement predicates. In spoken Hungarian, however, these verbs have also developed a clearly telic variant associated with a verbal particle.
