Hout, Angeliek van 2018 Chapter 5. On the acquisition of event culminationSemantics in Language Acquisition, Syrett, Kristen and Sudha Arunachalam (eds.), pp. 96–121 | Chapter
There is quite a high rate of acceptance of telic-perfective predicates as descriptions of non-culminating events in children learning Germanic and Romance languages.
