the grammar and structure of all languages, and interest in them reaches across
linguistics. 'The Oxford Handbook of Tense and Aspect' is a comprehensive,
authoritative, and accessible guide to the topics and theories that currently form
the front line of research into tense, aspect, and related areas. The volume
contains 36 chapters, divided into 6 sections, written by internationally known
