In this paper, we discuss the phenomenon of logical polysemy in natural language as ~ddressed by Gener- ative Lexicon Theory. We discuss generally the role of type and sortal coercion operations in the selnantics, and specifically the conditions on the application of coercion in aspectual predicates and other contexts.
