- The purpose of this general survey is to show the role of the conjunctional suffixes in the tense of Cheju dialect.
As a start, let us divide them into two patterns. They can be divided into reason and act-sequence suffixes according to their functions. From these suffixes, I found two tense forms, such as -n and .D; the former has [ + past] and the latter has [-past]. I would thus like to make a few rules relating the conception of the time of the native speaker with the tense system.
First, the contrast of [+ past] to [- past] is explained by the time of utterance being
Second, if the preceding conjunction involves [ + past], the final conjunction will involve [+ past].
Third, if the preceding conjunction involves [-past], the final conjunction will involve [- past].
But it should be noted here that the rules given above do not pertain to the aspect in that sentence. A\so there are some exceptions; for example: 1) a pair of past] and is used irregularly for the time of utterance, 2) when the feature of the preceding conjunction is [+habit], [+truth], [+simultaneous] or [+repetition], it is
used extensively for the whole time.
In this paper, I have only discussed tenses, but the significance of the study with respect to tense-aspect remains to be explored in the future.
