Abstract:

This book is the first book-length study on the Swedish present perfect. It
provides an in-depth exploration of the present perfect in English, German
and Swedish. It is claimed that only a discourse-based ExtendedNow-approach
fully accounts for the present perfect. The main claim is that the length
of the ExtendedNow-interval varies cross-linguistically. The book is
couched within the framework of the Discourse Representation Theory and
also within Distributed Morphology. It is shown that Swedish provides
empirical evidence against all previous research in the field. The
following questions are investigated: Is it possible to assign a single
uniform meaning to the present perfect? How can we account for the
different readings of the perfect? How can we account for the
cross-linguistic variation? These issues are addressed from a comparative
perspective by integrating previous research on the present perfect. This
book is of interest to all those working in the field of tense and aspect.
