Book Information

   

Title: From now to eternity
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=Chronos+22
Series Title: Cahiers Chronos 22
Description:

The present volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 7th
Chronos colloquium in Antwerp (2006). They specifically focus on issues
dealing with the categories of Aktionsart, aspect and tense, and the
possible relations between these categories, mainly in Germanic and Romance
languages. Some of the papers in this collection put the relation between
tense and modal meaning into focus, which was in fact the Antwerp
conference’s special topic. More in particular, the papers in this volume
deal with: non-state imperfectives in Romance and West-Germanic; aspectual
properties of French locative constructions; a new typology of
accomplishments and achievements; the compatibility of (im)perfective
aspect with negation; temporal properties of gerundive adjunct clauses in
Portuguese; the Present Perfective Puzzle; the multiple meanings of the
present perfect in the Germanic languages; modal uses of present and
non-present tenses in Dutch and French; the impossibility to use
‘perfective’ viewpoint tenses in conditional protases.
