We present in this article, as a part of aspectual operation system, a gene- ration system of iterative expressions using a set of operators called iterative operators. In order to execute the itera- tive operations efficiently, we have classified previously propositions denoting a single occurrence of a single event into three groupes. The definition of a single event is given recursively. The classification has been carried out especially in consideration of the dura- tire / non-durative character of the denoted events and also in consideration of existence / non-existence of a cul- mination point (or a boundary) in the events. The operations concerned with iteration have either the effect of giving a boundary to an event ( in the case of a non-bounded event) or of extending an event thr...
