504    Includes bibliographical references and indexes 
520    "Certain grammatical elements help hearers know how 
       propositions are conceptually related: Does a given 
       proposition advance the foregrounded event line, or not? 
       Initiate versus continue an event chain? Indicate that one
       proposition belongs to a different "mental space" from the
       previous one? Provide background information? Studies in 
       this volume show that African languages sometimes support,
       but often refute the idea that perfective aspect or past 
       tense marks the narrative event line. Rather, languages 
       may employ clause level constructions, conjunctions or 
       connectives, tonal melodies on verbs or subjects, 
       specialized auxiliaries, special verb forms and even 
       dependent clause and imperfective aspect forms. Often, 
       correlation of such grammatical elements with the event 
       line is a subcase of a more general function. Analyses in 
       this volume contribute to developing a typology of the 
       expression of discourse functions, a field of research 
       which has so far been minimally addressed from a 
       typological perspective"--|cProvided by publisher
