Temporalité et compétences (méta)linguistiques

Abstract : This paper focuses on how French first-year primary school pupils deal with tensed verb forms, at an age when they are thought to have not yet developed a sense of time. Indeed, it is assumed that up to the age of six or seven children assign aspectual functions to tense inflections even if they build these forms correctly. The hypothesis behind the study is that this dichotomy is to be linked to various physiological properties inherent in language acquisition. These tensed verbal forms consequently appear to take on a perceptual function rather than an aspectual one. It is therefore a safe assumption that children acquire their sense of time through perceptual properties.
