Dates: 02-Sep-2019 - 04-Sep-2019
Location: Tromsø, Troms, Norway

Focus: The course will discuss peculiar properties of grammatical aspect, one of the most versatile and striking grammatical categories of natural languages. The primary objective of the course is to present recent accounts of aspect in terms of various theoretical frameworks, including contemporary cognitive and formal approaches. The focus will be on rich empirical data from a variety of languages, including Germanic, Slavic, Celtic, Romance and Indo-Iranian languages (in particular English, Russian, Bulgarian, Scottish Gaelic, Spanish, and Hindi) as well as some non-Indo-European languages. The course will cover both broad-ranging issues regarding aspect as well as research findings of the instructors. The course will be taught by seven instructors: María J. Arche (University of Greenwich), Östen Dahl (Stockholm University), Stephen M. Dickey (University of Kansas), Mila Dimitrova-Vulchanova (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Antonio Fábregas (UiT The Arctic University of Norway), Laura A. Janda (UiT The Arctic University of Norway), and Gillian Ramchand (UiT The Arctic University of Norway). Each instructor will hold a lecture and a tutoring session for students.
Minimum Education Level: MA
Special Qualifications: The course can be taken as a single course by doctoral students from Norway and other countries. Any doctoral student with an interest in aspect and verbal categories is encouraged to attend.

Description:
This is a three-day intensive course, which requires the reading assignment to be completed prior to the course and the course paper assignment to be completed after the course. The course will be taught in English. Students should write their course papers in English. The course can be taken as a single course by doctoral students from Norway and other countries. The course will offer 6 lectures (2 hours each) and 3 tutorial sessions (2 hours each).
