This study aims to provide a survey of periphrastic aspectual constructions in contemporary European Portuguese.
The author bases their classification on the model proposed for Spanish by Bohumil Zavadil, elaborating on the conception of Eugenio Coseriu and Nelson Cartagena. Periphrasic constructions are divided here according to their aspectual meaning into three basic groups: ingressive, durative and terminative periphrases.
Altogether, 60 different verbal periphrases, presented in the following table, have been investigated and classified in the dissertation. To determine the meaning of the whole construction, a broader context must be considered, since some periphrases may be polysemic.
