Counterfactuality and Future Time Reference: The Case of Paraguayan Guarany´ı –'mo’˜a'

  • Judith Tonhauser

Abstract

Paraguayan Guaran´ı has a verbal suffix –mo’˜a that realizes future time reference in one type of clause and counterfactuality in another. This paper explores the truthconditional semantics of –mo’˜a in the two types of clauses and identifies parallels and differences between counterfactual and future time interpretation. The paper concludes by discussing the feasibility of a unified analysis of –mo’˜a.
