Sample text

Although the event is seen from the shifted point of view, the original one of the actual origo, however, is not canceled; rather, the object in focus is doubly localized. The past event is, at the same time, anchored to the point of perspective and the time of speech. As a result, there are inherently two given viewpoints from which the event is “seen”. As Leiss (2012: 51) puts it, “both perspectives emerge immediately” as soon as the past tense is used, cf. Figure 2: a. b. The earth was flat.

Note that in descriptive systems in terms of Reichenbach (1947), the ‘time of speech’ is an abstract vantage point – which can coincide with the origo of a ‘speaker’, but does not ­necessarily have to do so (cf. g. Klein 1994, 2009). Chapter 1. Perspectivization as a link between narrative micro- and macro-structure  ii. Due to (i), the speaker is split into two roles, namely a ‘speaker’ at the original viewpoint and an ‘observer’ at the shifted viewpoint. iii. There is a hierarchical difference between the two viewpoints as the shifted viewpoint is in the scope of the original one.

There is a hierarchical difference between the two viewpoints as the shifted viewpoint is in the scope of the original one. Tenses therefore do not only localize events in time (as the traditional definition by Comrie 1985: 9 holds). According to Klein (1994: 140) and Johanson (2000: 34), they locate the point of perspective with respect to the time of utterance (Klein 1994: 14) and thus situate “the perspective on the event rather than the event itself ” (Johanson 2000: 34; emphasis in the original).
