Dear Lingtyp list,
A student of mine is collecting data on lexemes denoting consecutive days
after tomorrow in East Caucasian (and neighboring) languages, and we were
wondering if anyone here knows of any typological research that discusses
the encoding of this concept (or perhaps more broadly systems of naming
days and their diachronic development), or any language-specific work that
explores such terms in some detail.
In some East Caucasian languages, there are unique, non-compositional terms
for the day after tomorrow, the day after the day after tomorrow, for up to
6 days after tomorrow. We have been able to find some languages that also
have a non-compositional term for the day after the day after tomorrow, for
example, but we can't seem to find anything more elaborate than examples on
internet fora or short sentences in reference grammars.
