Pressestimmen

From the reviews:
"The theme of this volume is the grammatical relations between tense and modality. ... the book helps to develop a perspective on tense and modality and their grammaticalization cross-linguistically. The individual articles of this book present the most current advances in research on these topics. Thus, I believe students and researchers who look for detailed analyses on the syntax and semantics of modality and tense will very much benefit from this book." (Nilüfer G. Sener, The Linguist, April, 2009)
