Abstract:[Modality as a Temporal Perspective Effect.] This article deals with some special uses of tenses in French, whose referential interpretation in discourse is quite different from their basic virtual meaning. French grammars call theese “modal uses of tenses”: imparfait d’imminence manquée, imparfait ludique et hypocoristique, futur d’hypothèse, de rétrospection et d’atténuation, etc. The author tries to reconsider these questions by means of cognitive grammar concepts in order to determine the relations between modality and perspective.
Key words:
  • temps verbaux, signifié virtuel, usage dérivé, image, perspective, transfert mental, réalité connue vs réalité inconnue, modalité propositionnelle et illocutoire, effets contextuels
  • verbal tenses, virtual signifier, derivative use, image, perspective, mental transfer, known reality vs unknown reality, propositional and illocutionary modality, contextual effects
Language: French
