Временна́я дистанция в языке гбан (южные манде)

This talk provides an analysis for the functioning of the temporal distance in past category which has emerged in Gban (South Mande). The category consists of three subcategories: hodiernal (“today’s past”; default interpretation ‘(earlier) today’), hesternal (“yesterday’s past”; default interpretation ‘yesterday’) and remote (default interpretation ‘the day before yesterday or earlier’). When influenced by a temporal location adverbial modifier, the interpretation of sentences with temporal distance forms changes in a nontrivial way.
