43 Position of tense, aspect, and mood markers in relation to the verb

Description

This feature asks about the position of tense, aspect, and mood (TAM) markers in relation to the verb. Where a language is shown with different values, this is because different TAM markers occur in different positions.

Note that he term aspect is used in a restricted way (as in feature 49), referring only to the distinction between imperfective and perfective aspect, leaving aside other aspectual categories such as completive, resultative, or iterative.

By "leftward position", we mean that elements such as object pronouns, negators, or lexical items may occur between the TAM marker(s) and the verb. By "rightward position", we mean that elements such as object can occur between the verb and the TAM marker(s).
