Dear all,

I hope this message finds you well.

I send you this email because I was wondering if you know any studies that
have explored 'from...to...' clauses, as in (1).

(1). *From the moment he was born until the moment he died*, *he never

This temporal construction is interesting because it involves a point of
departure, a 'from' clause, and an endpoint, a 'to' clause.

Many sources of Dogon and Mesoamerican languages contain detailed
descriptions of this type of temporal adverbial clause.

I was wondering if you know any study that has explored this construction.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance!
