Title: Tense and Aspect: From Semantics to Morphosyntax
Written By: Alessandra Giorgi
Fabio Pianesi
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

This book examines the interactions between the morphosyntax and the
semantic interpretation of tense and aspect in the Germanic and Romance
languages. These languages diverge not only in their variety of tense and
aspectual forms, but also in the distribution and interpretation of given
forms. Adopting Noam Chomsky's minimalist framework, Alessandra Giorgi and
Fabio Pianesi attempt to provide theoretical explanations for the observed
patterns of form and meaning which link the morphosyntactic properties of
languages in both universal and language-particular constraints on
interpretation.
