Continous or Repetitive action?
I notice that all of the examples here have cues in them to indicate repetitive action. What if the sentence does not contain such cues? Should it be interpreted as continuous action or repetitive action?
e.g. Je faisais du sport.
Without any cues would that mean “I was playing sports” or “I used to play sports” or is it equally ambiguous?
This question relates to:French lesson "Expressing habits or repeated actions in L'Imparfait (imperfect tense)"
Without any other clue, its exact temporal interpretation would be left open. One would wait for the speaker to provide some context.
