Title: Cross-linguistic Semantics of Tense, Aspect, and Modality
Edited By: Lotte Hogeweg

Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 148
Description:

In recent years, we have witnessed, on the one hand, an increased interest
in cross-linguistic data in formal semantic studies, and, on the other
hand, an increased concern for semantic issues in language typology.
However, only few studies combine semantic and typological research for a
particular semantic domain (such as the papers in Bach et al. (1995) on
quantification and Smith (1997) on aspect). This book brings together
formal semanticists with a cross-linguistic perspective and/or those
working on lesser-known languages, and typologists interested in semantic
theory, to discuss semantic variation in the specific domain of Tense,
Aspect, and Mood/Modality.
