The conference took place at the University of Caen-Basse-Normandie from June 25th to June 28th 2003, and was co-organized by the Crisco umr cnrs research group and the French Department at Tel Aviv University, Israel. The contributors to this volume aim to present a broad spectrum of theoretical approaches to the analysis of constructions entitled periphrases verbales. Their work revolves around three central themes: the definition of these constructions and the distinction between certain verbal expressions and true periphrastic expressions- a particular meaning or function of these expressions- and specific nominal constructions considered as periphrastic expressions. The volume is divided into seven sections, each throwing light on a particular aspect of periphrastic expression from various perspectives. The issues discussed are: temporal and aspectual periphrases- auxiliaries, copula, and support verbs- causative periphrases- venire and aller + infinitive / participle- inchoative periphrases- modal periphrases- and the heritage of Gustave Guillaume.
