Summary/Abstract: The subject of the scientific analysis in the present book is the paradigm of the language means used for expressing verbal quantity. The book presents cogent arguments as regards the existence of a genetic, typological and formal disparity among the quantitative systems of nouns, adjectives and numerals in comparison to the one of verbs, on account of which the study subsequently discards the popular concept of the hyper-categorial nature of quantity. The book presents a new model of the different types of aspectual relations in the Modern Bulgarian language. The Verbal Aspect is interpreted as a three-member category, formed as a result of the complex interactions between the separate functional-semantic fields in the area of Aspectuality.
