(Please note: the book is in French)

This book examines the representation of Time in languages. The
questions in the center of the volume are: how do morpho-syntactic
categories yield temporal interpretations at the clause level and in
discourse? What are the forms of cross-linguistic variation in this
domain and what are its limits.

The seven contribution in this volume deal with these questions in a
unified conceptual frame defined according to three characteristics:
the distinction between temporal localization, aspect and event
(Aktionsart), the analysis of tense as the set of relations between
intervals, and the interaction between the lexicon and grammatical
categories. The papers in this collection shed new light on
traditional descriptive problems such as the question of the
borderlines between aspect and Aktionsart in morphologically rich
languages, the differences between the temporal systems of French and
English, the origin of new temporal forms in roman languages,
different interpretations associated to grammatical tense forms.

In confronting theories and complex empirical data, this volume aims
at revealing their explanatory force, while giving a representative
survey of recent developments in the syntax and semantics of time and
tense in natural languages.

Temps et aspect: de la morphologie a l'interpr�tation, textes 
r�unis et pr�sent�s par Brenda Laca.
De la collection "Sciences du Langage", �dit�e par Brenda Laca

Comment rendre compte de fa�on explicite de la repr�sentation 
du temps dans les langues? Comment articuler les cat�gories 
morpho-syntaxiques avec la construction d'interpr�tations 
temporelles au niveau de la phrase et au niveau du discours? Quelles 
formes prend la variation interlinguistique dans ce domaine et quelles 
sont les limites de cette variation?

Les sept contributions r�unies dans ce volume abordent ces 
questions � partir d'un cadre conceptuel commun, d�fini selon 
trois caract�ristiques : la distinction entre localisation 
temporelle, aspect et �v�nement (Aktionsart), l'analyse du =
temps comme ensemble de relations entre intervalles, l'attention =
port�e aux interactions entre lexique et cat�gories =
grammaticales. Elles jettent une lumi�re nouvelle sur des =
probl�mes descriptifs traditionnels, tels la question des =
fronti�res entre aspect et Aktionsart dans les langues � =
morphologie aspectuelle riche, les diff�rences entre les =
syst�mes temporels du fran�ais et de l'anglais, la gen�se =
de formes temporelles nouvelles dans les langues romanes, les =
diff�rentes lectures possibles pour les temps grammaticaux=E2=80=A6

En confrontant les th�ories � des donn�es complexes et =
vari�es, ce volume vise � mettre en �vidence leur pouvoir =
explicatif. Ce faisant, il fournit un �chantillon =
repr�sentatif des d�veloppements r�cents concernant la =
syntaxe et la s�mantique du temps dans les langues naturelles.
