Abstract: The report is a statistical survey of the use or various tense and aspect forms of verbs in in text. The source texts are the Helsinki Corpus of Swahili 2.0 and the DAHE corpus. The size of the former is about 25 million words, and the latter has less than half a million words. Comparison is made in the use of various tense and aspect forms in different text types. A more detailed analysis is made with eight fiction books of Shaaban Robert for finding out the degree of consistency in using tense and aspect markers.
