The article deals with the role of discursive temporality, namely, the necessary time
that is needed for the aspect-time conceptualisation of scenes conceived of as belonging
to the past and expressed by linguistic temporality, which in turn is closely
associated with the choice of forms and indicators of time. This analysis of selected
discourse of narration samples demonstrate an important connection between
imagery (on the cognitive and conceptual level), register type (especially mediated
register) that is realized in a discourse, and the coexistence of the verb forms that go
beyond the so-called norm.
