ON THE CATEGORY OF ASPECT IN BENGALI
Languages of publication
Although, in some languages, the research of the category of aspect goes as far back as the end of the 19th century, for the new Indian languages this is a relatively new problem. It started to pay attention to aspect only as late as in the middle of the 20th century, and relatively little research has been done in this area up to now. This also applies for Bengali, where within investigating this verbal category several approaches have appeared. The aim of the article is to present a brief survey of the history of the research of aspect in Bengali as well as on the basis of existing findings. The authoress analyses Bengali texts to provide her own view of the means which expressed this semantic category in the Bengali language.
