The creators spent the last week of August 1998 to go
to the Burning Man festival. But before they could
engage in some radical self-expression and/or radical
self-reliance in the Nevada desert, they needed
something a little less radical: a way to let people know

This paper outlines a framework of the temporal
interpretation in X with a special focus on
complement and relative clauses. It argues that not
only does X have no morphological tenses but there
is no need to resort to covert semantic features

Instead, it utilises various factors such as the
information provided by default aspect, the tenseaspect particles, and pragmatic reasoning to
determine the temporal interpretation of sentences.
In short, which language does not have the concept

X is a daily webcomic which has been running daily

"Daily Lessons in Science, Literature, Love and Life". It is
authored by research scientist Dante J.T. Shepherd, and
