This research group will explore the idea that habitual expressions may:
- characterize types of events or states that involve repetition;
- characterize a specific, individual event or state as habitually recurring;
- characterize a set of different events of states (e.g. with varying participants) as habitual; and
- characterize a proposition as universally valid.
By including the latter use, the project includes genericity within its scope.
The group meets every two weeks, which are dedicated to presentation and discussion of typological data, hypotheses, and discussion of draft versions of the joint major article that is envisaged as the deliverable of this group's activities.
