Abstract: In this paper we consider a verbal form of the Armenian system, the Aorist, that exhibits temporal and aspectual properties not easily fitting the "canonical" descriptions. We will see that its distribution might seem at first sight incoherent and show that only by means of a finer analysis it is possible to account for its characteristics in a uniform way. To this end, we compare the Armenian aorist with the English simple past and present perfect, on one side, and with the Italian passato remoto (simple past) and passato prossimo (present perfect), on the other.
