This paper explores the behaviour and meaning of temporal sentence frames of the type (a) 'Volt úgy, hogy..., Volt, hogy..., Volt, amikor..' It has already been the case that..., (b) 'Az volt, hogy...' What happened was that..., (c) 'Úgy volt, hogy..' The idea was that..., in view of the aspectual characteristics of the subordinate clauses involved. The temporal sentence frames in question are reduced main clauses that hardly influence the propositional content of the whole sentence, or not at all; yet, by accurately pinpointing the reference time, they modify the temporal value of the sentence to a significant extent. Temporal sentence frames exert their influence in conjunction with the morphologically encoded temporal character (tense) of the subordinate clause and with the aspectual character of the whole sentence.
