Abstract:
This thesis develops a theory of a spectual interpretation based on a representation of eventuality reference which is implicit in any sentence uttered in natural language. Language users categorise real world events into various types, termed aspectual class, and these event types can be identified by diagnostic tests,which rely on inferences between sentences and co-occurence with certain temporal adverbials and other aspectual forms.
