  1. Gnomic aspect

    The gnomic, also called neutral, generic, or universal aspect, mood, or tense is a grammatical feature that expresses general truths or aphorisms. Used to describe an aspect, the gnomic is considered neutral by not limiting the flow of time to any particular conception. Used to describe a mood, the gnomic is considered neutral by not limiting the expression of words to the speaker's attitude toward them. Used to describe a tense, the gnomic is considered neutral by not limiting action, in particular, to the past, present, or future. Examples of the gnomic include such generic statements as: birds fly; sugar is sweet; a mother can always tell. If, as an aspect, it does take temporality into consideration, it may be called the empiric perfect aspect. Generally, though, it is one example of imperfective aspect, which does not view an event as a single entity viewed only as a whole, but instead specifies something about its internal temporal structure. A grammatical gnomic aspect occurs in literary Swahili, where the -a- form of the verb is gnomic and the -na- form of the verb is episodic. Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan do not have a gnomic inflection in its verbs like Swahili, but it does have lexical aspect in its be verbs ser and estar. For instance, estar enfermo or estar malalt mean to be sick, whereas ser enfermo or ésser malalt mean to be sickly.
