Abstract:

Spanish Consecutio Temporum: Myths and Reality

Jerzy Kowal
York University

The aim of this monograph is twofold: (1) to study the actual state of the
Consecutio Temporum (Ct) in modern Spanish and see how the rules of the
most recent Spanish grammar of the Real Academia Española (Esbozo de una
nueva gramática de la lengua española, 1973) reflect that actual state of
CT, and (2) to propose improvements and make those rules more precise. To
study the actual state of CT in modern Spanish, the author has examined
some 5,000 articles from twelve Spanish-language newspapers from seven
Spanish-speaking countries. The compiled corpus of combinations of tenses
proves that it is not sufficient to base the rules solely on the tense of
the main verb because the main verb (V1) can combine with the subordinate
verb (V2) almost in any tense.

After considering the excerpts from the newspapers, it becomes evident that
the main factor in selecting the tense for V2 is the lexical meaning of V1
which holds the information on how both verbs should temporarily combine.
The temporal orientation conveyed by the lexical meaning of V1 can however
be modified by a series of elements (temporal adverbs, level of privacy of
V1, subject of V2, telicity of V2, eternal truth, etc.) that are implied in
the sentence.
