I think this is one of those places where you get to excerice your artisitic license as a conlanger. Make up your own term. :) However, if you *really* care, you could see what term(s) other linguists have used to describe this aspect. I'd suggest anything by Bernard Comrie, but especially *Language Universals and Linguistic Typology*. _____________________________________________________________________________ Christopher Reid Palmer : : innerFire on IRC (EFNet)
