  6. What do we need to remember regarding Aspect in the Indicative
    Although aspect always takes precedence over time

    In indicative mood time is an importand factor and can affect time.

    "I am loosing"


    "I loose"

    • instead of "I went --> I myself went"


    "He went --> the same person went."
