      Mood, Aspect, Modality Revisited offers a significant focus on the subjunctive and modality in relation to tense and aspect, a very intriguing topic that deserves more attention in the field. The chapters are thematically related in an interesting way, and the contributors are eminent scholars in Brand: University of Chicago Press. Kit Fine has since the s been one of the leading contributors to work at the intersection of logic and metaphysics. This is his eagerly-awaited first book in the area. It draws together a series of essays, three of them previously unpublished, on possibility, necessity, and tense. These puzzl. This volume explores the extremely rich diversity found under the “modal umbrella” in natural language. Offering a cross-linguistic perspective on the encoding of modal meanings that draws on novel data from an extensive set of languages, the book supports a view according to which modality infuses a much more extensive number of syntactic categories and levels of syntactic structure than.

In linguistics, modality is a system of linguistic options that allows for expressing a speaker's general intentions (or illocutionary point) as well as the speaker's belief as to whether the proposition expressed is true, obligatory, desirable, or actual.

Modal options can be realized by word order (), modal auxiliaries and modal mes, the term mood is used to refer to both mood. This article is concerned with the notions of tense, aspect, and modality from a typological point of view. It provides an overview of the major areas of ongoing research and also a description of where the three areas overlap or not.

The semantic category of tense is usually defined as the linguistic representation of time. There are three absolute tenses: present, past, and by: 8.

There is a proliferation of terms in the study of tense, aspect and modality (TAM). But it is assume that cross-linguistic differences in the distribution of particular TAM expressions are is not reflected in the formal semantics discourse on modality (e.g. Portner ).

"Crosslinguistic views on tense, aspect and modality" is an impressive collection of relevant papers the scope of the book is both broad and up-to-date, providing insights into grammatical categories which interest various specialists, ranging from theory-inspired linguists to practice-focused pedagogues.

Hopper (Ed.) The verbal categories of tense and aspect have been studied traditionally from the point of view of their reference to the timing and time-perspective of the speaker’s reported experience. After an introductory chapter that provides an overview to theoretical issues in tense, aspect, modality and evidentiality, this volume presents a variety of original contributions that are firmly empirically-grounded based on elicited or corpus data, while adopting different theoretical frameworks.

Thus, some chapters rely on large diachronic corpora and provide new qualitative insight on the. This book deals with the issue of subjectivity (and intersubjectivity) in modality from a synchronic perspective, and from a diachronic perspective more generally with semantic change in modality Author: Heiko Narrog.

This book is a cross-linguistic exploration of semantic and functional change in modal markers. Its approach is broadly functional typological but makes frequent reference to work in formal semantics by scholars such as Angelika Kratzer and Paul Portner.

The author starts by considering what modality is and how it relates to and differs from subjectivity. For more information on the discourse semantics of French tense and discourse organization in general, the reader is advised to consult de Swart and Corblin (), Asher and Lascarides () and van Lambalgen and Hamm (, especially chapter 9).

Abstract. It has been shown that, at least in certain languages, tense is represented in nominals (Lecarme,). It is therefore important to consider whether the interplay between tense and modality which is commonly found in clauses exists in the nominal domain as by: Andrej Malchukov is the author of Studies in Ditransitive Constructions ( avg rating, 1 rating, 0 reviews, published ), Set Valency Classes in th 4/5(5).

tense-aspect systems of other languages were like from the linguistic literature. This is the background to my switch to a more data-oriented approach. InLars-Gunnar Andersson and I applied for financial support for a large-scale project on 'Universal grammar and language typology', with tense-mood-aspect as one of the fields of research.

This volume explores phenomena which come under the heading of epistemic modalities and evidentiality in more or less well-known languages (Germanic, Romance, Balto-Slavic, Hungarian, Tibetan, Lakandon and Yucatec Maya, Arwak-Chibchan Kogi and Ika).

It reveals cross-linguistic variations in the structuring of these vast fields of enquiry and clearly demonstrates the relevance and interplay of. This volume explores the linguistic expression of modality in natural language from a cross-linguistic perspective.

Modal expressions provide the basic tools that allow us to dissociate what we say from what is actually going on, allowing us to talk about what might happen or might have happened, as well as what is required, desirable, or permitted. cross-linguistic discussions of the more widely studied sources of modality with analyses of novel or unexpected sources, and shows how the meanings associated with the three types of modality are realized across a wide range of languages.

Her research is in the domain of natural language semantics, focusing on modality, tense, and aspect Manufacturer: OUP Oxford. As such, this volume offers a truly multilingual perspective on verb constructions.

The diversity of comparisons also highlights the multi-faceted nature of the verb phrase, which seems to have virtually limitless potential for exploration in the fields of tense, aspect, modality, lexical semantics, syntax, and phraseology.This book will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in cross-linguistic variation in Tense-Aspect-Modality and/or the morphosyntax or morphosemantics of Dravidian languages.
