Tempus und "Mündlichkeit" im Mittelhochdeutschen
Tense and Orality in Middle High German

Zur Interdependenz grammatischer Perspektivensetzung und "Historischer Mündlichkeit" im mittelhochdeutschen Tempussystem

What does the grammatical category tense have to do with “orality,” and how can this relationship be investigated in historical context? This study explores this question based on a detailed empirical investigation of the Middle High German tense system. Here the textual and functional distribution of the tenses are traced back to a binary structured system depending on two different discourse modes, thus showing an indirect relationship between tense and “historical orality.”
