Bloomington: Slavica. 390-405 Victor A. FriedmanHoward Aronsons contributions to the study of verbal categories represent some of the most important advances in this area of linguistic investigation since Jakobsons (1932/1971, 1957/1971) seminal articles. Building on work by Goab (1964), Janakiev (1962), and Kuryowicz (1956:26), Aronsons (1977) discussion of aspect and mood in Bulgarian introduced a significant modification of Jakobsons (1957/1971) system by defining mood as the qualification of the narrated event without reference to the speech event or participants and status as the relationship of the participant in the speech event (the speaker) to the narrated event, thus effectively replacing Jakobsons category of evidential. Aronson, however, while adducing Jakobsons Bulgarian example of evidentiality in his redefinition of status, does not explicitly reject the notion of a separate category of evidentiality. In his subsequent comprehensive reworking of Jakobsons scheme, Aronson (1991) defines status as the relation of the narrated event to the speech event and still leaves open the possibility of an evidential category defined as the qualification of the narrated event by participant in the speech event.
