Abstract

This paper provides empirical insight into the progressive aspect in Ladin. Current literature does not provide an exhaustive explanation of how progressive is encoded in this Raeto-Romance variety. Some clues, however, do exist and suggest the presence of a progressive periphrasis of different types in different varieties of Ladin (e.g. ester tl laûr de fà – ‘to be at work to do’ > ‘I am doing’ – Badiotto; Gallmann et al. 2008). This article provides novel data aiming to shed light on the verbal periphrasis in this Alpine variety.
