Resumo

We aim to investigate the morphological realizations of habitual (“usually”), continuative (“still”) and prospective (“almost”) aspects in English by means of a corpus analysis. The methodology consists in a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the online Santa Barbara Corpus of Spoken American English. The hypothesis is that the most common morphology to convey these aspects along with adverbs in English is the progressive morphology. It was found that the adverb seems not to be a factor that significantly influences the morphology.
