Meeting Description:

The proposed workshop is intended to create a forum for the discussion of habitual and generic expressions from a diachronic point of view. Its aim is twofold: first, to shed light, from a diachronic perspective, on the question whether habituality and genericity are two distinct categories or not; second, to investigate the nature of changes with respect to various habitual/generic forms and their interactions with (A)spect-(T)ense-(M)ood categories.

Workshop convenors: Nora Boneh, Lukasz Jedrzejowski

Invited speakers: Regine Eckardt, Hana Filip
