Abstract:

This book addresses recent developments in the study of tense from a cross-
paradigm and cross-linguistic point of view. Leading international scholars
explore challenging ideas about tense at the interfaces between semantics
and syntax as well as syntax and morphology. The book is divided into three
main subsections: 1) Tense in tenseless languages; 2) Tense, mood, and
modality, and 3) Descriptive approaches to some tense phenonema. Although
time is a universal dimension of the human experience, some languages
encode reference to time without any grammatical tense morphology of the
verb.

Some of these exceptional "tenseless" languages are investigated in this
volume: Kalaallisut, Paraguayan GuaranĂ­ and Movima. Modal verbs are
polyfunctional in the sense that they express both tense and modality. In this
volume, an untypical modal is analyzed, a modal analysis of imperatives is
argued for, and sentential mood, which is closely related to modality, is
analyzed. It is always interesting to look at the expression of tense in
understudied languages, which is done here for Scottish Gaelic, Austronesian
Rukai and German dialects. The volume can be used for graduate and
undergraduate level teaching.
