Abstract:

The study of the linguistic reflexes of aspect has been an active field of
research in various sub-disciplines of linguistics, such as syntax,
semantics (including discourse theory) and acquisition studies. However,
communication and dissemination of results across these various subfields
has often been indirect. This volume solves that problem. The different
angles brought together here give us a comprehensive picture of the
representation of aspect in the mind/brain of the speaker.

The papers in this volume represent the results of a workshop on the
syntax, semantics and acquisition of aspect held in 2002 whose purpose was
to foment active cross-disciplinary communication. A number of the papers
examine the syntactic representation of lexical or situation aspect, while
others focus on the syntactic interaction of lexical aspect with
grammatical aspect, and of grammatical aspect and tense. Other papers
examine the role of aspect in discourse representations, while a third
group of papers reports on results of empirical studies on the acquisition
of aspect in both first and second language acquisition, and patterns of
loss of morphosyntactic reflexes of aspect in language attrition.

This volume is of interest to researchers and advanced graduate students in
syntax, semantics, discourse representation and language acquisition,
particularly those working on tense and aspect.
