They specifically focus on issues dealing with the categories of Aktionsart, aspect and tense, and the possible relations between these categories, mainly in Germanic and Romance languages. Some of the papers in this collection put the relation between tense and modal meaning into focus, which was in fact the Antwerp conferences special topic. More in particular, the papers in this volume deal with: non-state imperfectives in Romance and West-Germanic- aspectual properties of French locative constructions- a new typology of accomplishments and achievements- the compatibility of (im)perfective aspect with negation- temporal properties of gerundive adjunct clauses in Portuguese- the Present Perfective Puzzle- the multiple meanings of the present perfect in the Germanic languages- modal uses of present and non-present tenses in Dutch and French- the impossibility to use perfective viewpoint tenses in conditional protases.
