Title: Text, Time, and Context
Subtitle: Selected Papers of Carlota S. Smith
Edited By: Richard P. Meier
Helen Aristar-Dry

URL: http://www.springer.com/978-90-481-2616-3
Series Title: Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy
Description:

Carlota S. Smith was a key figure in linguistic research and a pioneering
woman in generative linguistics. This selection of papers focuses on the
research into tense, aspect, and discourse that Smith completed while
Professor of Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin. Smith, who
died in 2007, was a trailblazer in her field whose broad interests fed into
her scholarly research.

Selected by Carlota Smith herself and by her longtime friends and
colleagues, this book contains her 1980 piece on temporal structures in
discourse, her 1986 comparison of the English and French aspectual systems,
a 1996 paper on the aspect system in Navajo (an increasingly-endangered
language which Smith worked to preserve), and her 1980 and 1993 papers on
the child’s acquisition of tense and aspect.

The current volume of articles covers much of her most fruitful work on the
way in which language is used to express time, and will be essential
reading for many working and studying in linguistics generally and in
semantics particularly.
