I bring some evidence from durative adverbial selection, habitual and generic sentences and state of result constructions.

Abstract

This work investigates the semantics of tense and aspect in Romance languages. I argue that the temporal homogeneity of the tense complement plays a fundamental role in tense selection. I bring some evidence from durative adverbial selection, habitual and generic sentences and state of result constructions.
