    Project: Research project

    Description

    The project focuses on the interaction between a) grammatical and lexical means of expression and b) linguistic code and pragmatic inferences in the creation of temporal coherence in discourse. Crucial differences in the establishment of temporal relations between Yucatec Maya and (esp. Western) European languages shall be accounted for on a theoretical level as well as on a typological and on a conceptual level.
