Abstract:

It is a well-known fact that the area of the present perfect has always been a
hotly contested ground, but recent corpus analyses have shown that grammatical
variation in this realm in English is far more pervasive than previously
assumed.

This volume is the first ever book-length treatment dedicated to corpus-based
work on the present perfect. It offers fresh theoretical insights resting on a
solid empirical footing and investigates central aspects of language contact
and change, grammaticalization, typology, and dialect formation. It sheds
light on this morphosyntactic area from different angles, as it comprises both
diachronic and synchronic viewpoints. 

Contributions explore variation in the expression of perfect meaning and the
multifunctionality of perfect forms in a number of native and non-native
varieties, thus going beyond the traditional British/American English
paradigm, while a second focus lies on cross-variety comparisons.
Bringing together the knowledge of leading experts in the field, this book
represents the state of the art in data-driven research on the present perfect
and will be of interest for those working in the fields of language variation
and change, corpus linguistics, sociolinguistics, and typology.
