This paper investigates the semantics of tense and aspect in Italian with particular attention to Perfect constructions. It argues that temporal homogeneity is a relevant factor for tense selection and the sentence aspectual meaning; it claims that the perfect morphology is ambiguous between the spell out of state of result constructions and Priorean temporal operators, in Italian.

Abstract

This paper investigates the semantics of tense and aspect in Italian with particular attention to Perfect constructions. It argues that temporal homogeneity is a relevant factor for tense selection and the sentence aspectual meaning; it claims that the perfect morphology is ambiguous between the spell out of state of result constructions and Priorean temporal operators, in Italian.
