"Perfect Explorations" contains contributions dealing with the syntax,
morphology, semantics, and diachronic development of the Perfect and
the components it is built on across languages. The volume brings
these aspects together, working towards a comprehensive theory of the
Perfect which takes into consideration the interfaces between the
various components of the grammar. Issues addressed include: the
temporal vs. aspectual character of the perfect, the contribution of
adverbial modification, the structure of the perfect participle.
