Le présent qui s’allonge, se contracte, dure et passe… ses va- leurs aspectuelles (illustrées dans le discours journalistique)

Liliana MOISII RĂDULESCU

Abstract


In order to be situated in a series of events, facts or phenomena, a process must be localized and specified. The process can be approached from two perspectives: on one hand, one can indicate in which stage of its development, of its progress it is – it is the role of the category of aspect; on the other hand, one can indicate in which moment it can be placed in the sequence of events – it is the role of the category of tense. The aspect and the tense are closely-knit grammatical categories but they are distinct because two verbal forms can be opposed only from the aspect’s point of view. The tense shows the moment an action occurs whereas the aspect indicates the way in which the action expressed by the verb is perceived in its progress.
