3V1085.01 Correct use of present progressive aspect: [I keep finding it hot] (1/11/81)

I made some soup for Miriam, Peggy, and myself. As we began tasting
the soup, I asked Peggy, “I find the soup hot, do you?” She replied,
“Yes,” then and several times later in the meal said “I keep finding it
hot.” The significance here is her correct use of the present
progressive aspect (with auxiliary “keep”).
