Subject Language(s):  Hindi

Query:   Dear All,
I am looking for any recent work done on Hindi aspect, in current frameworks/models, something which takes into account or uses a model which can potentially take into account all levels of aspectual interpretation in Hindi, and also how they interface. The analyses that I have come across so far provide valuable insights into Hindi aspect but they usually tend to focus on any one feature, or level of aspectual interpretation, and posit broad categories in which 'types' of aspect are fitted in. However, my own initial study shows that a lot of sentences in standard contemporary Hindi would resist fitting in such traditional accounts. a range of factors appear to contribute to aspectual interpretation in Hindi, and the interpretation cannot be attributed solely to any one morpheme or set of morphemes in the verbal complex. I have however read v.little so far. I would be very grateful if I could get some pointers, concerning any recent publications on Hindi aspect, which shed some light on what I am trying to look for and what I have vaguely tried to describe above!
my email:,
Thanks v. much,
