Modern Greek <i>-tos</i> (τος) and <i>-menos</i> (μενος)
In this paper, a detailed semantic classification of Modern Greek verbal adjectives ending in <i>-tos</i> and <i>-menos</i> are attempted. The semantic properties of the two adjectival forms show their contrast. According to our analysis, they express at least two different values of the aspectual notion “state”. We will argue that the verbal adjectives in <i>-tos</i> express a descriptive state of inherent properties opposed in a generic descriptive state. We can conclude that in Modern Greek the verbal adjectives lend themselves to a refinement of the value of state.
