Abstract:

The field of verbal aspect has been a focus for the derivation of a
multiplicity of theoretical approaches ranging over decades of linguistic
research. From the point of view of recent studies, though, there has been
relatively little emphasis on the nature of the interaction of aspect with
other categories, and the ways in which our knowledge of aspect acts as a
primary semantic contributor to the creation of other basic verbal
parameters such as tense and modality. This book aims to cross some of the
categorial borders, using a collection of studies on the interfaces of
English aspect with other grammatical domains. The studies in the book have
been assembled in order to answer two central issues surrounding the nature
of English aspect: the possibility of the historical co-existence of a
perfective and imperfective grammatical distinction in English, and the
derivation of modality as an inference arising out of specific conflicts
and combinations of lexical and grammatical aspect. In answering these
questions, a data-driven, rather than a theory-driven approach is favoured,
and the general principles of Gricean pragmatics and grammaticalisation are
applied to a wide range of empirical sources to propose alternative
explanations to some long-established problems of English historical
linguistics and semantics.
