Time and the Verb: A Guide to Tense and Aspect‏‎ (book)

Author: Robert I. Binnick
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Details: Hardcover; 584 pages; Pub.1991
ISBN: 019506206X

Hailed as one of the most important books to have appeared on tense and aspect, Binnick’s guide provides the reader (whether student or advanced scholar) with a comprehensive perspective, both diachronically and synchronically, into this very complicated area.

From classical Greek and Latin grammar through to the latest proposals in formal semantics, the range covered is impressive, giving the reader a tremendous amount of interesting data that is fully analyzed, explained and evaluated.

Breathtakingly compendious but never gratuitous, this book is accessible and useful to both scholars and laypersons. Anyone interested in tense, aspect, or time studies should read and reread this book. It sums up, and defines, the discipline.
