Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 102
Description:

What does the grammatical category tense have to do with orality, and how
can this relationship be investigated in historical context? This study
explores this question based on a detailed empirical investigation of the
Middle High German tense system. Here the textual and functional
distribution of the tenses are traced back to a binary structured system
depending on two different discourse modes, thus showing an indirect
relationship between tense and historical orality.
