About this item

Expressions of time--tense and aspect--are little discussed in most grammatical description of Cu******ic, Ethio-Semitic, Nilo-Saharan, and Omotic languages spoken at the Horn of Africa, so linguists here seek to fill the void. Their topics include static verbs in Ge'ez, the interaction of time and epistemic modality in Amharic, aspect and tense in Oromo, experiencer constructions and the resultative function of impersonal verbs in Ethio-Semitic, and a contrastive analysis of some occurrences in the verbal systems of Amharic and Tigrinya.
