Abstract:

The papers in this volume investigate the semantics of aspect from both a
theoretical and a crosslinguistic point of view, in a wide range of
languages from a number of different language families. The papers are all
informed by the belief that a thorough exposure to the expression of aspect
crosslinguistically is crucial for progress in understanding how the
semantics of aspect works and what the semantic basis of aspectual
distinctions is. The languages discussed include Russian, English, Dutch,
Hebrew, Mandarin, Japanese and Kalaallisut. The issues discussed in this
volume include the centrality of measuring and counting in an understanding
of telicity; the importance of the singular/plural distinction in the study
of aspect; the importance of homogeneity as a property of event types; the
flexibility of lexical classes; and the interaction between expressions of
aspect and the particular morphosyntactic structure of a language.

Linguistic Field(s): Morphology
