My ph. d-thesis deals with verbal expressions with future time reference in Swedish. In the study I suggest a model for the contextual anchoring of the finite tenses and shows how this anchoring effects the verbal expressions with future time reference in various ways. My recent work considers situation type semantics within a Vendlerian framework. One aim of this work is to define the role of the lexicon in relation to compositional aspect. I have done empirical studies on for instance the narrative structure of Danish urban legends and on language acquisition, especially the acquisition of verbs and tense in two Swedish boys recorded by diary notes.
