Tenses are traditionally presented as part of a stable temporo aspecto-modal
system where each fulfils specific and differentiated functions. 'Eppur si
muove': discursive practice shows a less constraint state of affairs and reveals
a 'dynamic synchrony'.
The aims of the workshop will be to describe and to analyze the places where
change is currently happening, and where discursive practices are likely to make
the verbal system evolve, as well as to evaluate the factors provoking changes.
In addition, it is hoped that the meeting will be the starting point of an
international reflection network on the issues covered.
