This volume on TAME systems (Tense-aspect-mood-evidentiality) stems from the 10th Chronos conference that took place in Aston University (Birmingham, UK) on 18th-20th April 2011. The papers collated here are therefore a chosen selection from a stringent peer-review process. They also witness to the width and breadth of the interests pursued within the Chronos community. Besides the traditional Western European languages, this volume explores languages from Eastern Europe (Greek, Romanian, Russian) and much further afield such as Brazilian Portuguese, Korean or Mandarin Chinese. Little known languages from the Amazonian forest (Amondawa, Baure) or the Andes (Aymara) also come under scrutiny.

History of Logic and Semantics

Studies on the Aristotelian and Terminist Traditions

Edited by Paloma Pérez-Ilzarbe and María Cerezo

This volume pays homage to the historian of logic Angel d’Ors (1951-2012), by bringing together a set of studies that together illuminate the complex historical development of logic and semantics. Two main traditions, Aristotelian and terminist, are showcased to demonstrate the changes and confrontations that constitute this history, and a number of different authors and texts, from the Boethian reception of Aristotle to the post-medieval terminism, are discussed.
Special topics dealt with include the medieval reception of ancient logic; technical tools for the medieval analysis of language; the medieval theory of consequence; the medieval practice of disputation and sophisms; and the post-medieval refinement of the terminist tools.
Contributors are E.J. Ashworth, Allan Bäck, María Cerezo, Sten Ebbesen, José Miguel Gambra, C.H. Kneepkens, Kalvin Normore, Angel d’Ors, Paloma Pérez-Ilzarbe, Stephen Read, Joke Spruyt, Luisa Valente, and Mikko Yrjönsuuri.

These articles were also published in Vivarium, Volume 53, Nos. 2-4 (2015).

Die ostseefinnischen Sprachen enthalten viele alte, d.h. vor etwa 500 A.D. übernommene Wörter germanischer Herkunft. Die germanische Lehnwortschicht reicht teilweise bis in die Jahrhunderte vor unserer Zeitrechnung zurück. Im dreibändigen Werk werden fast 1400 Stichwörter behandelt. Die Autoren stellen nicht nur sichere Lehnwörter vor, sondern auch solche Wörter, die in der Forschungsliteratur zu Unrecht für germanische Lehnwörter gehalten worden sind oder deren germanische Herkunft zweifelhaft ist.

Building a bridge between linguistic communities of the Old and the New World

Current research in tense, aspect, mood and modality

Series:

Edited by Chiyo Nishida and Cinzia Russi

The present volume is a collection of fourteen original papers selected from those presented at the first US installment of Chronos: International Conference on Tense, Aspect, Mood and Modality, which took place at the University of Texas at Austin in October, 2008. The volume serves as an excellent forum for international scholars working on expressions of on tense, aspect, mood and modality. It contains papers dealing with a diverse variety of languages ranging from well studied languages like English, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Japanese, to less known ones like Basque, Chamorro, Iquito, Australian English and Singlish. The originality and relevance of the individual contributions is highlighted by the broadness of the theoretical approaches they employ and the novel empirical data they examine. All the studies go beyond exploring issues strictly related to tense, aspect, mood and modality; rather, they cut across all main linguistics subfields, such as syntax, semantics, pragmatics, language acquisition and language evolution, thus attesting to how research on tense, aspect, mood and modality is vital to the better understanding of human language in general. This diverse nature of the volume will certainly appeal to broad audience.

Tense, aspect and mood have attracted much attention in the areas of both first and second language acquisition, but scholars in the two disciplines often fail to learn from each other. Western European languages have also been the focus of most studies, but there would be lessons to learn from less studied languages.
This volume offers new insights on tense, aspect and mood by bringing together the findings of first and second language acquisition, and comparing child and adult, monolingual and multilingual learning processes that are approached from various theoretical points of view. In addition, it spans over a wide range of less studied languages (Bulgarian, Hebrew, Korean, Russian), and Western European languages are studied from new angles.

The present volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 7th Chronos colloquium in Antwerp (2006). They specifically focus on issues dealing with the categories of Aktionsart, aspect and tense, and the possible relations between these categories, mainly in Germanic and Romance languages. Some of the papers in this collection put the relation between tense and modal meaning into focus, which was in fact the Antwerp conference’s special topic. More in particular, the papers in this volume deal with: non-state imperfectives in Romance and West-Germanic; aspectual properties of French locative constructions; a new typology of accomplishments and achievements; the compatibility of (im)perfective aspect with negation; temporal properties of gerundive adjunct clauses in Portuguese; the Present Perfective Puzzle; the multiple meanings of the present perfect in the Germanic languages; modal uses of present and non-present tenses in Dutch and French; the impossibility to use ‘perfective’ viewpoint tenses in conditional protases.

This volume is a selection of papers presented at the 7th Chronos colloquium in Antwerp (2006), which deal with the expression of modality (in a wide sense), by modal and semi-modal verbs (in Germanic and Romance languages), on the one hand, and by other markers (in languages like Turkish, Tibetan and Japanese), on the other. The Antwerp edition’s special conference topic was the interaction between tense and modality, of which some of the papers collected in this volume also testify. The volume covers a wide range of languages and topics. Specific topics include: the distinction between root and epistemic modality and its interaction with tense and counterfactuality; epistemic deve and dovrebbe in Italian; semi-modals in German; the interpretation of epistemic past modals in English and Spanish; the interface between Turkish ‘almost’ adverbs and the Turkish verbal system; the meaning of epistemic endings in Spoken Standard Tibetan; Korean ‘evidential’ markers teiru and ta and so-called fake past sentences in Japanese.

Cet ouvrage propose de jeter un nouveau regard sur des questions qui sont au cœur des problématiques de linguistique française étudiés dans les Cahiers Chronos. Plusieurs auteurs étudient des questions de temps et d’aspect (Apothéloz & Nowakowska, Haas & Huyghe, Lauze, Lebas-Fraczak, Moline, Provôt ; Deslés & Vinzerich) ou des emplois modaux (Engel ; Forsgren & Sullet-Nylander, Lansari, Morency, Patard & Vermeulen). D’autres étudient la temporalité dans le discours (Bres, de Saussure), adoptent une perspective diachronique (De Mulder, Vetters) ou abordent la temporalité du point de vue de l’enseignement du FLE (Barbazan). La diversité des approches réunies dans ce volume fera avancer les débats et sera une source pour de nouvelles contributions.

Le titre de ce numéro des Cahiers Chronos fait allusion à la notion d’ origo forgée par Karl Bühler et à sa thèse selon laquelle ici et maintenant définissent, respectivement pour l’espace et pour le temps, le point zéro de tout repérage déictique et sont donc, avec le pronom je, les embrayeurs (indexicaux) par excellence. Cette théorie, qui a connu un succès considérable auprès des linguistes, n’a pas eu que des effets positifs, car, en s’imposant comme une sorte de postulat, elle a bridé la réflexion sur les indexicaux et plus particulièrement sur ici et maintenant, sur leur statut et sur leur conditions d’emploi. Mais aujourd’hui, on prend heureusement conscience des lacunes que présente la recherche dans ce domaine, et l’ambition du présent volume est justement de participer à l'effort collectif entrepris pour les combler. Il s’adresse donc à tous les linguistes qui s’intéressent aux indexicaux et aux spécificités de leur fonctionnement.

Ce volume rassemble une série d’articles qui accordent une attention particulière à des phénomènes qui mettent spécifiquement en relation le niveau sémantique et pragmatique de l’interprétation. Les textes ici présentés font directement appel à des notions comme la représentation d’événements, la prise en charge, le contexte narratif, la sémantique historique, la structure informationnelle, qui sont toutes, dans leur diversité, des notions à la fois sémantiques et pragmatiques. Rassemblant des contributions de chercheurs de grand renom (Georges Kleiber, Carl Vetters, Liliane Tasmowski, Bertrand Vérine) et de chercheurs plus jeunes, ce volume se structure en fonction de thématiques. Il s’ouvre ainsi par des réflexions sur le futur, puis traite des emplois modaux du conditionnel et du verbe pouvoir, puis de l’imparfait narratif à l’oral, puis le gérondif. Deux articles sont ensuite consacrés au subordonnées introduites par quando (en italien) et cuando (en espagnol). Enfin, la position du passé simple en français est revisitée à la lumière de l’interlangue d’apprenants anglophones.
