The topic of the paper is the semantics of semelfactive and delimitative in a typological perspective. We describe in detail how semantic behavior of these derivations depends on the actional type of the verbal stem. We propose to analyze semelfactive as a situation of minimal duration and delimitative as a non-final portion of a situation. We show how this analysis allows to explain the variety of observed interpretations of the verbal derivatives.
