  • Aspect and the Categorization of Statesby David Brian Roby

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 135.00

    In this work, the Spanish copulae ser and estar are argued to be aspectual morphemes. Their binary opposition reflects the universal aspectual values [±Perfective], which are the same ones overtly expressed by the preterite and imperfect past tense forms in Spanish. It can therefore be shown that different types of states, just like different types... more...

  • Speech and Sociability at French Urban Marketplacesby Jacqueline Lindenfeld

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1990; US$ 149.00

    This study is both particularistic and generalizing.

At another level it constitutes an attempt to show some relationships between the... more...
