Abstract

In this paper the author examines aspectual usage of the Czech verba dicendi říkat/říci when they introduce direct speech. According to the common opinion (Kopečný, 1962 - see also Forsyth, 1970 about Russian) there is a high degree o indifference in this type of situation. Data from the Czech National Corpus show on the contrary that aspectual choice is always somehow motivated in a broader context. It seems therefore that indifference is a mere illusion created by the observation of artificial or contextless examples.
