Abstract:

This volume addresses problems of semantics regarding the analysis of tense
and aspect (TA) markers in a variety of languages, including Arabic,
Croatian, English, French, German, Russian, Thai, and Turkish. Its main
interest goes out to epistemic uses of such markers, whereby epistemic
modality is understood as indicating "a degree of compatibility between the
modal world and the factual world" (Declerck). All contributions, moreover,
tackle these problems from a more or less cognitive point of view, with
some of them insisting on the need to provide a unifying explanation for
all usage types, temporal and non-temporal, and all of them accepting the
premise that the semantics of TA categories essentially refers to
subjective, rather than objective, concerns. The volume also represents one
of the first attempts to gather accounts of TA marking (in various
languages) that are explicitly set within the framework of Cognitive
Grammar. Ultimately, this volume aims to contribute to establishing an
awareness that modal meaning elements are directly relevant to the analysis
of the grammar of time.
