Kinyarwanda, also known as Rwandan, is a national language of Rwanda (along with French and English) and spoken by almost all of the 11 million inhabitants of the country. Kinyarwanda is the second most widely spoken Bantu language after Kiswahili. It is a sister dialect of Kirundi, the national language of Burundi, so Burundians can understand Kinyarwanda well. Kinyarwanda speakers are also found in Uganda, Tanzania and in parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are an estimated 20 million native speakers of Kinyarwanda worldwide. Kinyarwanda has two major dialects: the northern dialect, Igikiga, and the southern dialect, Ikinyanduga, and both have sub-dialects. The differences among these dialects, however, are mainly lexical and phonetic.

Time is the most fundamental category of human cognition and action, and all human languages have developed many devices to express it. These include verbal categories, such as tense and aspect, but also adverbials, particles, and principles of discourse organisation. This book is intended as a tutorial for the study of how time is expressed in natural languages. Its chapters take the reader through a number of foundational issues, such as the various notions of time and the various means to express it; other chapters are devoted to more specific questions, such as the acquisition of time, its modelling in formal semantics and in computational linguistics, or how its expression can be empirically investigated.
