Title: At the Same Time...
Subtitle: The Expression of Simultaneity in Learner Varieties
Written By: Barbara Schmiedtová
Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition 26

The study endeavors a detailed and systematic classification of linguistic
simultaneity expressions. Further, it aims at a well described survey of
how simultaneity is expressed by native speakers in their own language. On
the basis of real production data the book answers the questions of how
native speakers express temporal simultaneity in general, and how learners
at different levels of proficiency deal with this situation under
experimental test conditions. Furthermore, the results of this study shed
new light on our understanding of aspect in general, and on its acquisition
by adult learners.
