Meeting Description: Bordeaux Colloquium
October 2014

The research group on Greek aspect and the University Michel de Montaigne-Bordeaux 3 are organizing an international colloquium on the Greek future expressions and their history for October 10-11, 2014.

The future is back: many publications and recent works show a renewed interest in the future on the part of linguists. One of the reasons for this interests consists in the diversity of problems that it poses: morphological mutability, semantic uncertainty, in terms of tense, mood, and aspect as well as of reference, as well as pragmatic uncertainty, in its relationship to suggestions and imperative orders. This elusive character can only excite the curiosity of linguists.

This colloquium will be centered essentially on one language (if one may call it that), Greek, which has the distinction of offering nearly 35 centuries of almost continuous documentation. That is to say that the diachronic perspective will be essential.

Colloque de bordeaux
Octobre 2014

Le groupe de recherche sur l'aspect en grec et l'université Michel de Montaigne-Bordeaux3 organisent les 10 et 11 octobre 2014 un colloque international sur les futurs grecs et leur histoire.

Le futur est de retour: plusieurs publications et ouvrages récents manifestent un regain d'intérêt des linguistes pour le futur. Une des raisons de cet intérêt consiste dans la diversité des problèmes qu'il pose: mutabilité morphologique, incertitude sémantique, tant du point de vue du temps, du mode et de l'aspect que de celui de la référence, incertitude pragmatique aussi entre la suggestion et l'ordre impératif. Ce caractère insaisissable ne peut que susciter la curiosité des linguistes.

Ce colloque sera centré essentiellement sur une langue (si l'on peut dire), le grec, qui a la particularité d'offrir à peu près 35 siècles de documentation presque continue. C'est dire que la perspective diachronique sera essentielle.
