Title: The Syntax of Aspect
Subtitle: Deriving Thematic and Aspectual Interpretation
Edited By: Nomi Erteschik-Shir
Tova Rapoport
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-928044-4
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics No. 10
Description:

This book investigates the way grammar deals with the representation of
aspectual (aktionsart) concepts, focussing on issues of the lexicon-syntax
interface. The authors' innovative analyses of this interface significantly
advance our understanding of the role that syntax plays in determining
verbal meaning, aspectual interpretation, and thematic information.
Various theories are developed in this collection, including those that
take as their starting point the lexical-syntactic framework of Hale and
Keyser, prominent among which is the chapter by Hale and Keyser themselves.
By examining different phenomena in a cross-linguistic perspective, this
book develops insights into the general theoretical question of universal
grammar and acquisition as well as into the specific nature of the
lexicon-syntax interface. It is a major contribution to modern syntactic
theory.
