Linguistic construal of time lies at the center of language and language use; it is also one of the cognitive foundations of culture. The focus of the papers in this volume is on historical developments of genetically different aspect and tense systems across continents.

        • Simple present Ø-R-a6.As one reviewer pointed out, our construction labels, i.e. simple present, present imperfective and future, do not neatly reflect the uses of each construction. For example, the present imperfective Ø-R-ang-a is attested only with habitual meaning in the 17th-century data, whereas in the same period the simple present Ø-R-a covers multiple other imperfective categories such as progressive and generic aspect. However, we do use these labels to make it easier for the reader to track the different constructions throughout the article, and by extension throughout time. Moreover, as the meaning and use of the constructions change over time, it is impossible to provide function-based names that fully hold for the three time periods.

    • 3.Late Old Japanese tense-aspect1.A note on transcription of historical examples: We have chosen to transcribe examples based on historical phonology instead of graphematics (the writing system) or the Modern Japanese phonology. This entails that the same grapheme (kana) may represent different phonemes at different periods of time. The transcription here is based on Rothaug (1991).Potentially contentious issues are solved as follows. The so-called 8-vowel contrast of Old Japanese is represented as /a/, /ye/, /e/, /i/, /wi/, /wo/, /o/, and /u/ in the tradition of Unger (1975). The phonemic change of Old Japanese /p/ (Modern Japanese /h/) is assumed to have taken place as follows: In onset position: /p/ > (8th CE) /f/ > (17th CE) /h/. In medial position: /p/ > (8th CE) /f/ > (11th/12th CE) /w/, 0 before /u/ > (13th CE) /y/ before /e/ > (17th CE) 0 before /e/, /o/ (cf. Rothaug 1991: 86–87). Note that Frellesvig (2010: 176) suggests a later shift from /p/ to /f/ in onset position, but an earlier shift from /p/ to /w/ in medial position.

      • 5.1Paths of grammaticalization8.Note that there have been two previous attempts to represent the grammaticalization paths of Japanese tense/aspect markers, one by Goto (2001) and one by Watanabe (2005), which is supposed to integrate findings from other languages as well. There is some overlap with both, but also some divergences. For example, Goto (2001) posits that perfective proceeds perfect, and in order to be consistent with this order, has to claim that tari >Ta has no perfective usage. Watanabe (2005) claims that -Te wi- already grammaticalized in the Heian period as a marker of resultative, which is not generally accepted in more recent research.
