Vol 17 (2018): The perfect issue

This volume studies perfect constructions across languages and pays special attention to perfectivity and its relation to the perfect. The issue aims to explore the relation between telicity/perfectivity and the perfect, some points of contrast between the perfect and (im)perfective markers, temporal readings of the perfect and its different degrees of remoteness, the existence of the aoristic drift, present tense lengthening in the perfect, among other topics linked to both notions.
