The Reference and Discursive Values of HAVER de + Infinitive in European Portuguese and Their Equivalents in Slovenian
Keywords:HAVER de Infinitive, referential functioning, discursive functioning, narrative strategies, autonomous discourse time
In this article, using as a corpus the novel Memorial do Convento by José Saramago and its Slovene translation Zapis o samostanu, the aim is to analyse both the referential and discursive functions of the verbal construction HAVER de + infinitive in European Portuguese, in contrast to the linguistic resources that express the same meaning in Slovenian.
The article aims to contribute to the contrastive description of the temporal, modal and discursive values that the corresponding forms of the two languages and to show that the various forms of HAVER de + infinitive and the corresponding linguistic resources in Slovenian function within the narrative as autonomous temporality markers which are used to express: (i) anachronies associated with prolepses, (ii) shifts from narration to commentary, and (iii) shifts from narration to appealing to the reader.
