Abstract

In Sikuani (Guahiban, Orinoco) the only explicitly marked tense is future. Present and past are lumped together as a default subproduct of realis mood. As usual, future entails modal meaning. But space and aspect contribute much more to the elaboration of modal distinctions.The paper will unveil the intricate links between space, aspect, tense and modality.
