Abstract:

The articles in this edited volume represent a range of approaches tostudying the role of verbal aspect in grammatical variation. Issuesaddressed include: defining the variable context; operationalizingaspectual distinctions as factors conditioning linguistic variation; andthe appropriate number of aspectual distinctions and levels. Apart frombringing to light various methodological and analytical issues, this volumegathers together a unique collection of original research, based on spoken-and written-language corpora, of an array of languages and linguisticvarieties: African American Vernacular English, Caribbean English andEnglish-based creole, Indian English, Newfoundland English, CanadianFrench, Brazilian Portuguese, Ecuadorian Spanish, Mexican Spanish, andPeninsular Spanish. This volume should not only benefit research ongrammatical variation but also be of interest more generally to the studyof verbal aspect.
