She compares how Englishspeaking learners of French L2 (at two competence levels) and native speakers (of French vs. English) mark boundaries and simultaneity in controlled situations where they had to describe motion events. The results show crosslinguistic differences in the discourse of French vs. English natives that can be related to the particular temporal–aspectual and spatial systems of these languages. As for learners, after a first phase where they rely mostly on lexical means (inherent semantic properties of predicates, adverbial expressions), they gradually and simultaneously acquire both verbal morphology and syntactic constructions (subordination) in order to express both temporal– aspectual and spatial relations in L2 discourse.
