Research Career

  • 英語の現在時制諸現象の包括的説明に関わる「状態性」を巡る通時的・共時的研究

    仮定法現在と接続法 / 英語の現在時制 / 状態性 / 現実性・断定 / 単純現在形文法書記述

    研究期間: 2022.04  -  2025.03

     More details

    本研究は、英語の多種多様な現在時制諸現象を、「状態性」を核に、一貫した原理で、より包括的な記述を図るものである。単純現在形は、現在・過去・未来の、または時間を超越した事象、等を表す等とされ、統一性を欠く用法列挙で記述されることが多い。先行研究記述の守備範囲も不十分で、主な用法に関しては示唆に富むものがあっても、例外も少なくない。本研究では「状態性」を、同じ現在時制形態素を共有する、単純現在形、現在進行形、現在完了形現象を貫く基軸概念と仮定し、これを語用論・認知言語学・歴史言語学・類型論・社会言語学の知見や集積を視野に入れ、体系的に追求し論証する。

    研究期間: 2017.04  -  2022.03

     More details

    前年度に引き続き、18 世紀の多様な英語活版印刷物のPDFフルテキストアーカイブECCO (Eighteenth Century Collections Online)から、実在した人物の声を反映する書簡を中心に、コンテクストを読み込みつつ目を通し、the be+V-ing構文(通称進行形)を拾い集め続けると共に、使われ方を考察した。(進捗状況は、現時点で2020年度までに終了する計画だった分の6割程。)前半は、4月-7月の調査研究において、特に、状態進行形(一般に状態動詞と呼ばれてきた動詞を現在分詞の語幹とする進行形、及び、これまで確立してきた「状態」の定義に照らしても「純粋に状態を表していると十分考えられる進行形」)について、近現代を通じた先行研究が観察し言及してきた歴史的データや事実を、改めて18世紀の使用実態と比較しつつ、再検討した。

    その結果として、進行形の語用論的観点からみた様々な使用の場での役割が、現代も含め歴史を通じ一貫し、進行形の根幹的意味と核機能と符合することを論証できた。就中、18世紀文献における、話し言葉を反映する度合いが高いと考えられる、知人との近況に関するのやり取りなどの内容を中心とした書簡においては、進行形自体も、上記の意味での状態進行形も、現代の話し言葉におけるものと、ある程度近い頻度で使われていた可能性を、現在まで得られたデータ示唆することを確認した。

    本研究の目的は、現代標準英語進行形構文現在分詞の語幹がLangacker (1991, 2008)の言うPerfectiveでなければならないという制限があるのは何故かを解き明かすことにあったが、この常識とされてきた制限は、近代ー現代話し言葉の、標準を含む多様で自然な英語においては実は存在しないと考えた方が事実と合致するという結論に至った。その論拠として、Webster (1784)の進行形見解を進行形現象を再考すると多岐に亘る進行形現象を説明する核概念とできること、制限を唱えるPickbourn (1789)の論拠の脆弱性をBeattie (1783)との議論比較等により明らかにした。

    This study analyzes stative progressives actually used in 18th-century letters, examining the be+V-ing construction mainly in Eighteenth Century Collection Online. The findings being compared with the ones from a BNC corpus research focusing on the stative progressive in colloquial English, it suggests that usage of the construction would have been quite consistent and demonstrates that the progressive is compatible not only with statives construable as possibly dynamic but also with genuinely stative situations both in 18-century and Present-day English.

    This review article first overviews the pitiful condition of English education in Japan and the diverse aspects of the causes discussed by the 5 authors who have long been sounding alarm bells. At the same time, misleading measures that have kept failing to improve the system over 100 years are analyzed. Then this paper proposes a challenging but feasible solution as a breakthrough.

Conference Prsentations (Oral, Poster)

  • A Cognitive Grammar View on the Be+V-ing Construction

    Mariko Goto

    The 16th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference  2023.08  International Cognitive Linguistics Association

     More details

    Event date: 2023.08.07 - 2023.08.11   Language:English   Country:Germany  

    This study demonstrates how Langacker’s (1991: 209-211) cognitive grammar view of the Be+V-ing construction can help us better understand the basic core meaning of the construction. It also has a viable potential to analyze the basic contrast between the construction with an always-type adverbial (the always+Be+V-ing hereafter) and the simple counterpart diachronically as well as synchronically.
    Kranich (2010: 217) assumes that the always+Be+V-ing developed to express by default a negative speaker attitude in the 20th century, because temporariness signified by the Be+V-ing conflicts with continuity implied by the adverb. However, why the conflict should arise and lead to a negative meaning is not entirely clear. Besides, nearly half of the always+Be+V-ing is used in a non-negative sense. Moreover, already in the 18th century, the periphrasis was used in a negative sense as often as it is now. This is supported by evidence including more than 500 examples of the Be+V-ing construction with a stative verb and the always+Be+V-ing in the 18th century texts. Most of them had been left unexplored, though the latter half of the century is a critical period in investigating the construction.
    Elucidating the “internal perspective” which the construction takes on the participialized situation, Langacker (1991: 209) notes that the perspective is brought about by integrating Be functioning as the profile determinant and the head of the composite structure with the V-ing. This should effect the conceptualizer being existent in the midst of (i.e., experiencing a portion of) the participialized situation. Hence it would be reasonable to say that the construction profiles internality (inside-ness) rather than temporariness. The inside portion, captured through the perspective, obviously spans shorter than the whole, which can most likely be connected to the clearer, more focalized and vivid imageries. What triggers emotional coloring would, then, not necessarily be the conflict, but rather the close link between the clearer picture and emotional involvement (c.f. Kensinger: 2007).
    Langacker’s view needs to be freed from the traditional notion that only non-statives take the construction. As Killie’s (2014) diachronic study shows, statives also have always been taking it. However, since a stative situation also has an internal phase, where the conceptualizer can be, the internality can still explain diverse phenomena of the periphrasis most comprehensively. Langacker (1991: 262-266) notes that the simple present, including habituals, generally receives a stative construal. While He walks home is a habitual, He’s walking home can denote an internal phase of either a dynamic situation or a habitual. If Beavers always build dams predicates a habitual, so does Beavers are always building dams. It designates a metaphysical situation inductively derived from the conceptualizer’s actual individual perception of the situation ongoing whenever an occasion of assessment occurs to the speaker, whether the speaker may or may not find the animals’ behavior annoying. The difference between I love it, I’m loving it and I’m always loving it can also be described in a parallel manner.
    Furthermore, Langacker’s (1991: 26) insightful idea of profile shifting can relate the V-ing in the construction not only to the nominal V-ing but also to a diachronic fact that the form largely functioned as an abstract noun in OE (Irwin: 1967). An early variant of the construction comprising BE and {at/ in/ on}+V-ing also suggests its adequacy. Thanks to his conceptual tool devised in his theoretical framework, we can see that the periphrases with or without always have had consistent properties throughout history.

  • The BE+V-ing form with ALWAYS-type adverbials in 18th century letters

    Mariko Goto

    18th International Pragmatics Conference (ipra 2023)  2023.07  International Pragmatics Association

     More details

    Event date: 2023.07.09 - 2023.07.14   Language:English   Country:Belgium  

    This study explores why the BE+V-ing construction with always-type adverbials such as always and continually (always-progressive for convenience) as in (1) tends to sound more emphatic or emotionally colored than the simple counterpart as in (2), examining Kranich’s view of the progressive for reference.
    (1) We are always hearing positive feedback.
    (2) We always hear positive feedback.
    Based on her quantitative data and using He is always giving people lifts as an example, Kranich (2010: 217) notes that the always-progressive seems to have developed to express, by default, negative speaker attitude in the 20th century. However, while Kranich's (2007: 131) Google search shows that 52% of always-progressives are used in a negative sense today, my survey indicates that the percentage of those yielding negative reading is around 57% in 18th-century letters.
    Also, Kranich (2007) regards the always-progressive as a special kind of progressive that needs to be treated separately from other “normal” progressives. However, the line separating the two is not clear enough. Besides, they clearly share intrinsic features of the BE+V-ing construction. For instance, the construction essentially captures an internal phase of the participialized situation, on which the conceptualizer focusses. This feature alone can be sufficient to render the picture more detailed and vivid than the simple form that describes a wide-angle picture of the whole situation denoted by the verb. Always-type adverbials, whether hyperbolic or not, correspond to a situation repetitively holding at any point in time of perception. Therefore, the always-progressive can signify the conceptualizer’s recurrent perceptions of an actual particular subset of the participialized situation. While examples (1) and (2) are both associated with a habitual practice, the former can depict it as a series of recursive phenomena and the latter a metaphysically continuing phenomenon. This would explain why example (1) can sound more emphatic than example (2) does.
    As to why the use of the always-progressive is slightly biased toward expressing a negative sense, Kranich (2007: 131) attributes it to a sort of clash between the meanings of the construction and always. However, it appears to make more sense if we link the proportion to Kensinger’s (2007) psychological research evidencing that negative emotion is remembered more accurately and minutely than positive one. More detailed memories would help us pragmatically better prepare for the future. The BE+V-ing construction that can induce a clearer picture than the simple counterpart would be more likely to be employed for describing more detailed and vivid memory. As the tendency seems to represent an aspect of human nature, the relationship between the always-progressive and negative nuance in the 18th century and now would not be so different.

    This paper aims to reconcile what has been said for the past 300 years about the be + V-ing form in relation to stativity based on the actual usage data. First, the paper demonstrates that this periphrastic form with a “stative verb” has always been in actual substantial use since the OE period. Most intriguingly, the majority of late-modern English grammars referring to the construction, including Jones (1724), Lowth (1762), Webster (1784), Murray (1795), Bullions (1849), Kerl (1861), Nesfield (1898), employ I am loving as a model. While condemning the example started at the end of the 18th century and spread as the number of prescriptive grammars increased dramatically in the 19th century, linguistic accounts kept treating the construction as aspect-neutral (e.g. White (1870), Onions (1904), Laar (1922), Poldauf (1948), Myers (1952), and Visser (1963)). Jespersen (1932) and Zandvoort (1962) express skepticism as to whether stative constitutes a verbal category in English, examining real examples of the construction in context. At the same time, no data disagrees with the view that the form makes reference to the internal temporal constituency of the participialized situation and that stative situations do not involve change. These findings would indicate that the core function of the form can most adequately be accounted as confining the speaker’s commitment to an internal phase of the participialized situation. Characterizing the form this way can readily explain its affinity with notions such as intensity, immediacy, vividness, actuality (or phenomenality), focalization, intimacy, informality, colloquialism, and tentativeness, as well as its futurate use, the oddity of *It’s being 5 o’clock and why differentiating You’re looking good from You look good is rather difficult. Moreover, it can dispel Michaelis’s (2011) suspicion over Langacker’s (1991) description of the form as well as Granath and Wherrity’s (2013) doubt about the aspectual restriction on the progressive.

    The fact that the be + V-ing construction, which has always been more frequent in speech-based text through the history suggests that it would have been much more developed in spoken English than literature assumes. The data from ECCO and the Clift Family Correspondence 1796-1812 as well as recent studies demonstrate that the features of the construction in the 18th century are close to those of the present-day English progressive.
