Abstract
This paper aims to explore the relationship between boundedness and sentence completion. We found that it is the boundedness of eventualities instead of verb telicity that virtually affects and restricts sentence completion. Unboundedness and boundedness of eventualities are the underlying factors that influence and restrict sentence completion while sentence-completing elements are explicit markers of boundedness and unboundedness.
