Tempo, Modo e Aspecto verbal na estruturação do discurso narrativo

Adriana Maria Tenuta Azevedo


This paper presents an analysis of the verbal categories of Tense, Aspect and Mood as having the discourse function ofdistinguishing linguistic material from the foreground and background parts of
narratives in the Portuguese language. The corpus analysed was taken from spontaneous oral narratives from speakers of Brazilian Portuguese.
