Fourteen indicators that measure the frequency of lexico-syntactic phenomena linguistically re- lated to aspectual class are applied to aspec- tual classification. This group of indicators is shown to improve classification performance for two aspectual distinctions, stativity and com- pletedness (i.e. , telicity), over unrestricted sets of verbs from two corpora. Several of these in- dicators have not previously been discovered to correlate with aspect.
