MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this paper is to illustrate the possibility of interaction between Functional Discourse Grammar and typological studies by examining the relationship between evidentiality and tense in a sample of native languages of Brazil. More specifi cally, it shows that the nature of the mental process involved in the construction of evidential meaning determines its combination with different dimensions of past, present and future.
