Definition:

IterativeAspect, also called repetitives, encodes a number of events of the same type that are repeated on a particular occasion. The time interval which is relevant to the iterative is relatively shorter than in the case of the habitual [Bybee 1985, 150; Bybee, Perkins and Pagliuca 1994, 127]. Portrays events repeated on the same occasion (like the iterative knocking on the door) [Bhat 1999, 53]
