CHRONOS is a series of biannual conferences devoted to current research on the morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of markers of tense, aspect, mood, and modality. The conferences welcome presentations from scholars who approach linguistic research from different perspectives and embrace different theoretical frameworks. The current meeting will include a parasession in Romance languages.
