Spoken German shows a characteristic degradation of preterit forms. This study
provides a comprehensive documentation of this “disappearance of the preterit”
in time and space. It describes the loss of the preterit as a principled
process of displacement and develops a new integrated picture to resolve the
contradictory state of the theoretical research from the past 130 years.
