et de l’aspect
). Le thème de ce numéro a permis de regrouper des
articles couvrant une grande variété d’orientations théoriques tout en
partageant des préoccupations théoriques et empiriques communes. Le thème
général du numéro, Information temporelle, procédures et ordre
, regroupe des articles portant sur des questions de référence
temporelle, de description des informations procédurales des marques
temporelles, de leurs effets dans le discours et de connecteurs (avant

trouvent : i) la contribution des expressions temporelles à
l’interprétation du discours en tant que séquence organisée d’énoncés, ii)
les mécanismes d’interprétation qu’ils déclenchent et iii) la formalisation
la plus adéquate pour en rendre compte.
