The Processing of Tense

Psycholinguistic Studies on the Interpretaion of Tense and Temporal
Relations

by
Michael Walsh Dickey
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA

STUDIES IN THEORETICAL PSYCHOLINGUISTICS Volume: 28

This book presents an in-depth study of the processing of tense, more
specifically the English past tense. Against a detailed theoretical
background, it presents a number of psycholinguistic studies examining
how and when the language processor assigns an interpretation to tense
morphology. In so doing, it looks at several specific topics: temporal
anaphora resolution, adverb preposing and discourse relations, and the
sequence-of-tense ambiguity. The picture which emerges is one in which
the processor is not guided by preceding context in making
interpretive decisions regarding tense, as previous work has
suggested. Rather, sentence-level linguistic structure appears to cue
the processor in deciding which of multiple possible interpretations
to assign to a past-tense marker. The book also offers novel
theoretical perspectives on issues of both linguistic (temporal
adverbs, sentence- and discourse-level temporal interpretation) and
psycholinguistic (models of semantic processing) interest.

This work will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in
linguistics and psycholinguistics working on semantic processing,
temporal interpretation, and discourse processing.
