Abstract:

"Time" is the most fundamental category of human cognition and action, and
all human languages have developed many devices to express it. These
include verbal categories, such as tense and aspect, but also adverbials,
particles, and principles of discourse organisation. This book is intended
as a tutorial for the study of how time is expressed in natural languages.
Its chapters take the reader through a number of foundational issues, such
as the various notions of time and the various means to express it; other
chapters are devoted to more specific questions, such as the acquisition of
time, its modelling in formal semantics and in computational linguistics,
or how its expression can be empirically investigated.

From the contents: Introduction, Wolfgang Klein and Ping Li - Concepts of
time, Wolfgang Klein - How time is encoded, Wolfgang Klein - Temporal
anaphora in a tenseless language: the case of Yucatec, J├╝rgen Bohnemeyer -
Tenses in compositional semantics, Arnim von Stechow - Temporality in first
and second language acquisition, Yasuhiro Shirai - New perspectives in
analyzing aspectual distinctions across languages, Christiane von
Stutterheim, Mary Carroll, and Wolfgang Klein - Verb aspect and the mental
representation of situations, Carol J. Madden and Todd R. Ferretti -
Computational modeling of the expression of time, Ping Li and Xiaowei Zhao

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
