This work presents an analysis of the progressive in terms of partial realization of an event description. An event can be said to partially realize an event description only against a context-dependent modal background in which a development of the event fully realizes the event description. I discuss the consequences of the analysis for existential generalization with the progressive, for the possibility of incompatible developments, and for the multiple choice paradox.
