|TENSE AS DEIXIS IN ENGLISH|
|Mahmudova Shafagat Abdulla|
|This article deals with the tense,its usage as deixis in English. Regular tenses make reference only to time intervals,whereas spatial deictic tenses make reference not only to time intervals, but also to locations.Spatial metaphors are usually the basis of temporal reference in natural languages. For tense,this ostensive property of deixis can be interpreted as follows: the situations referred to by deictic tenses must be factual.|
|Key words: deixis, tense, aspect, spatial, deictic tense, speech act, evidentially.
