Item description for Verbal Aspect in Discourse (Pragmatics & Beyond) by Thelin...

In the light of growing insights into the universal temporal-semantic nature of aspectual distinctions, today's aspectology has broadened its attention from restrictedly event-defining functions of aspect on the sentence level towards its primary perspectival functions on the discourse/situation level. Hereby, it attempts to relate these functions to each other in ways that stimulate consistently language processing on a more solid perceptual-conceptual and pragmatic basis, reflecting in various ways this general tendency. The 13 papers in this volume are oriented to four fields of research: developmental properties of aspect and tense, ideo-pragmatic and conceptual-semantic correlates of aspect and the perspectival organization of discourse, aspect, case and discourse, and aspect in literary discourse. The editor's introduction gives a comprehensive survey of contemporary aspectology and its development towards a proper integration of discourse/situation conditions. Besides cross-linguistic considerations (including English), the languages analyzed specifically are Russian, Bulgarian, Lithuanian, French and Finnish.
