The paper is a contrastive survey of the category of aspect in Bulgarian and French. Some basic uses of the perfective and imperfective aspects are considered. The French aspect is treated on the lexical, grammatical and syntagmatic levels. Irrespective of the influence of the lexical content of the verb, aspect in Bulgarian is mainly a grammatical category. The lack of a formal aspectual marker in French is compensated for by the use of adverbs, special phrases and above all by the context. The French language makes use of lexical, morphological, syntagmatic and stylistic means to express the category of aspect.
