This is the first thoroughly comprehensive study of tense and aspect, linguistic markers signifying relations in time. Tense and aspect have been peculiarly resistant to linguistic classification and explanation. There continue to be many competing theories, many different terminologies, and considerable controversy and confusion surrounding these evidently universal linguistic phenomena. Robert Binnick's work will enable students, teachers, and scholars to understand th use of verb forms in particular languages.

Review quote

Binnick's is the only work with which I am familiar that provides the reader (whether student or advanced scholar) with so broad and deep a perspective. The range covered is impressive: from classical Greek and Latin grammar through to the latest proposals in formal semantics. * Bernard Comrie, author of The World's Major Languages *
