Title [The Discourse Function of Aspect in Koyukon Athabaskan]
Description:
The Discourse Function of Aspect in Koyukon Athabaskan
"The topic of the discourse function of aspect has received considerable attention in recent years. Most of the work done has addressed the use of perfective vs. imperfective or of various past tense constructions to organize narratives in terms of sequencing and foregrounding of events. In this paper I've looked at a language, Koyukon, that has a far more elaborate system of morphologically marked aspects than has previously been considered. Koyukon is a moribund Alaskan language of Alaska."
