correre

show comment

Correre is a manner of motion verb. It allows a telic reading when the direction of movement is overtly expressed, with ensuing selection of the perfective auxiliary essere ('be') and past participle agreement with the subject in compound tenses. The verb marginally allows a transitive use with a cognate object.
