Abstract:

> The only book to treat the specific problem of the interaction of
semantic, syntactic and even lexical principles in the construal of tense
and modality
> Brings together the contributions of the leading authors in the field

Time and Modality is a unique work of reference; not only does it unite
studies which explore the syntax and semantics of tense or modality but it
is the first book of its kind to embrace the interaction of tense and
modality within a coherent generative model. Various topics are covered in
this volume: among them are the counterfactual uses of conditionals,
modals, and past tense; the irrealis use of perfective aspect; a special
English subjunctive; the interaction of tense assignment and the definition
of an event; the modal verb as a causative verb; the interaction of
modality, tense, and aktionsart; the contrast between deontic and epistemic
modal with respect to tense interpretation; the syntax of epistemic modals;
the long-awaited definition of generic and habitual sentence; and the
introduction of intensionality in copular clauses.

Although every article deals with English to some degree, two chapters
compare the syntax and semantics of tense and modality in Spanish vs
English. The authors also investigate Slavic, Germanic, Afro-Asiatic,
Oriental, Amerindian Languages and Hungarian.
