  1. True Light Verb vs. Vague Action Verb
  2. aspect - In English the perfect construction does not express perfective aspect; that is expressed by the simple past form. The name perfect for the HAVE+past participle construction is a misleading historical accident.
  3. PEU 90 - be with auxiliary do (CGEL: "lexical be"; Quirk et al - ? )
  4. Actionsart
  5. NICE auxiliaries criteria: negation, inversion, emphasis and code.
  6. Quirk et al. p.839 - optative mood
  7. Veridicality
  8. I doubt this (all) the more - the as modifier or adverb
