Schedules in a Temporal Interpretation of Modals

  title={Schedules in a Temporal Interpretation of Modals},
  author={Tim Fernando},
  journal={J. Semantics},
Eventualities and worlds are analysed uniformly as schedules of certain descriptions of eventuality-types (reversing the reduction of eventuality-types to eventualities). The temporal interpretation of modals in Condoravdi 2002 is reformulated to bring out what it is about eventualities and worlds that is essential to the account. What is essential, it is claimed, can be recovered from schedules that may or may not include worlds.
