Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Aspects of Tense
Written By: Roos Vogel
Series Title: Ph.D. dissertation, Leiden University. [HIL Disser

Aspects of Tense presents a semantic theory of tense, based on data from Italian, English, and Dutch. By arguing that all tenses incorporate temporal and aspectual information, the author offers an explanation for the problematic behavior of tenses in embedded contexts. This approach allows for a unified analysis of Sequence of Tenses (Consecution Temporum) and its exceptions.
