Example text

The three forms of the quasi-nominal mood, because they represent the event from three different points of view, are the basis of the three marked aspectual forms of the verb, each with a suitable auxiliary: (44) (45) (46) Prospective Aspect: Progressive Aspect: Retrospective Aspect: I I will sing I am singing have sung Each of these compound forms, with an auxiliary in the non-past tense, contrasts with the simple non-past I sing, which is unmarked for aspect. The Prospective represents the subject in a position before the beginning of the event, with the event itself as purely potential.

The two past tenses, the imperfect and the preterit (we are considering here the literary form of the language which is more conservative than the colloquial form) are unmarked in this contrast. The marker l-r-l thereby distinguishes the past from the future, marking the horizontal contrast. But the vertical contrast is also to be found in both time-spheres, and the verb endings of the imperfect, which represent the decadent view of the past, are found again in the conditional, and are instrumental in marking the decadent view of future time.

Similarly a threshold, even an imaginary one, must occupy some part of the spaces that lie on either side of it, the spaces that it is intended to separate. In short, if there is no space between the two spaces in question, they are not separated and there is no limit or threshold. e. to the past. e. present perfect) may also be used: (19) (20) This is the first time I ever ate caviar.
