A propos de "behind" et "after"

Abstract : In this paper, the author sets out a formal representation of the prepositions after and behind which can be integrated into a larger system of representation applicable to all the markers of this category. The model is based on some of the metalinguistic concepts of the “Théorie des Opérations Enonciatives”. Its main characteristic is to refuse to give priority to spatiality but rather to propose a system of schematization abstract enough to account for the different values of the prepositions without having to resort to such concepts as metaphor or the like.
