A Language Strategy for Aspect: Encoding Aktionsarten through Morphology

Onderzoeksoutput: ChapterResearchpeer review


This chapter explores a possible language strategy for verbalizing aspect: the encoding of Aktionsarten by means of morphological markers. The Russian tense-aspect system is used as a model. We first operationalize this system and reconstruct the learning operators needed for acquiring it. Then we perform a first language formation experiment in which a novel system of Aktionsarten emerges and gets coordinated between agents, driven by a need for higher expressivity.
