This paper examines uses of the present perfect (PP) in Australian police media reports published on the web, as these show that the Australian English PP is currently acquiring perfective viewpoint features. We specifically focus on rhetorical relations in patterns of alternation between the PP and simple past, in order to identify discourse structural parameters underlying this evolution. We find that the relation of Elaboration plays a key role as it can lead to the inference that an event described in the PP is temporally included within or includes a past perfective event, thereby giving the PP a past perfective interpretation.

This book reviews the basic claims and descriptive constructs of Cognitive Grammar, outlines major themes in its ongoing development, and applies these notions to central problems in grammatical analysis. The initial review covers conceptual semantics, the conceptual characterization of grammatical categories, grammatical constructions, and the architecture of a unified theory of language structure. Main themes in the framework’s development include the dynamicity of language structure, grammar as the implementation of semantic functions, systems of opposing elements to serve those functions, and organization in strata representing successive elaborations of a baseline structure. The descriptive application of these notions centers on nominal and clausal structure, with special emphasis on nominal grounding.

Dans L'Elaboration du mythe de soi Solveig Hudhomme démontre comment les oeuvres de Samuel Beckett construisent leur propre mythe, mythe d'un espace, d'une intériorité permanente par-delà les frontières textuelles. Cette intériorité, ce que l'on peut appeler "le soi", est un lieu affranchi du biographique, du "moi", mais peuplé d'invariants. Cette étude se concentre sur la façon dont les histoires introduisent un principe de répétition et de reconnaissance, reconnaissance d'un lieu, d'une trame, d'un personnage. Dans l'ordre du récit, la contingence laisse place à la nécessité.

In L'Elaboration du mythe du soi Solveig Hudhomme highlights how Samuel Beckett’s works build a myth of their own, the myth of a space, a permanent inner space going beyond the textual boundaries. This inner place, "the self" as we can call it, is a place liberated from biography, from the « ego » but also a place in which some invariants can be found. This study focuses on the way stories introduce a principle of repetition so that the reader can recognize a place, a narrative, a character. As the story develops, contingency slowly grows into necessity.
