Book Information

   

Title: Perspectives on Aspect
Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics 32
Description:

The aim of this book is two-fold: to offer a retrospective view on the past
thirty years of research on aspectuality and temporality as well as to
develop new perspectives on the future development of the field. Articles
contain overviews of the development of the field and/or present the state
of the art of current research, suggesting new and upcoming lines of
research. An important theme throughout the book is typological variation,
and the relevance of empirical data for theory formation.

Together the articles in the book take a wide crosslinguistic scope
including aspectual analyses of: English, and two varieties of English:
African American English and Colloquial Singapore English, Italian, French,
Bulgarian, Czech, Mandarin Chinese, West-Greenlandic, Wakashan languages,
and Nakh-Daghestanian languages.
