This book examines the interactions between the morphosyntax and the semantic interpretation of tense and aspect in the Germanic and Romance languages. These languages diverge not only in their variety of tense and aspectual forms, but also in the distribution and interpretation of given forms. Adopting Noam Chomsky's minimalist framework, Alessandra Giorgi and Fabio Pianesi attempt to provide theoretical explanations for the observed patterns of form and meaning which link the morphosyntactic properties of languages in both universal and language-particular constraints on interpretation.

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. When studying the two concepts of tense and aspect linguists have commonly kept apart their semantic and syntactic properties. The authors bridge the gap between the semantic and syntactic properties of verb tense and aspect, and suggest a unified account of tense and aspect using Chomsky's Principles and Parameters framework. They compare tense and aspect systems in Romance and Germanic languages, allowing them to hypothesize principles of universal grammar relatedto tense and aspect, as well as explain language-specific phenomena. "They have achieved results in the area of tense and aspect that go well beyond what had been done previously." Richard Kayne, CUNY (series editor). Seller Inventory # AAV9780195091939
