C7

Verbal and Nominal Aspectuality Between Lexicon and Grammar

The aim of the project C7 is to investigate diatopic and diachronic variation in verbal and nominal aspectuality in Romance languages as well as Romance based creole languages. Our main attention will be on the interaction between grammar and the lexicon, in particular the division of labor in the emergence and constitution of aspectual meaning. C7 will examine two closely related aspectual domains: In the verbal domain the focus will be on imperfectivity and progressivity, with special regard to progressive verbal periphrases, while the nominal domain will focus on the interaction between nominal aspect and the particular lexical class of superordinate object mass nouns, situated between count and mass nouns.

Term: 2015 - 2021
