The purpose of this research is studying the structure of tense and aspect in Bala-Guerive Luri dialect. Bala-Guerive Luri is a variety of Luri dialect spoken by the inhabitants of Khorram Abad city, Lurestan province, Iran. The data have been collected through a ten hours recording of everyday conversations of Lur informants; and analyzed descriptively. This dialect has two tenses: past and non-past. Thus there are simple present, simple past, present perfect and past perfect. The representation of aspect in this dialect is different from Farsi. In this dialect perfective aspect is represented by simple past, present perfect and past perfect. Imperfective and progressive aspects in present time are shown by /h/ and in the past time are shown by /he: /. imperfective aspect is also shown by present perfect structure. Proximate aspect in the present time is shown by/ h/ with agreement to main verb in person and number and in the past time is shown by / hs/ with no agreement to main verb.
