Abstract:

This book addresses the problems of the nature of the category of aspect,
its formal expression and its relation to Action modes, to the
Aorist/Imperfect and Perfect/Non-Perfect distinctions. The discussion is
largely based on data from Bulgarian - a Slavonic language where aspect as
a grammatical category systematically coexists not only with verbal
prefixation, but also with temporal boundedness, correlation and, in the
nominal sphere, definiteness. Cross-language parallels with English and
French data and the mapping of Bulgarian structures to notions drawn from
the 'western' tradition of aspectual study result in the outline of a
framework for an integrated study of the expression of aspectuality in
languages belonging to different language groups. Refuting existing views
of aspect as a 'compensatory' phenomenon for nominal definiteness, the book
presents arguments in favour of a systematic relation between verbal
prefixation and NP quantification in Slavonic languages and of a
compositional, syntactic dimension of aspectual analysis. 

Contents:

Bulgarian language - The Slavonic category of aspect - Perfective and
imperfective verbs - The notion of change in interval semantics - The
'stative' verb, aspect and action mode - Aspect and tense - The
aorist/imperfect distinction - The aspect/temporal boundedness distinction
- Aspect and quantification - Action mode and syntactic structure.
