In the spoken language the perfect (ont fait) has effectively replaced the pasthistoric (firent) as a marker of past tense; in doing so its role as a marker of perfectivity has diminished. 2). 14 Perfectivity can be emphasised using what’s known as the passé surcomposé ‘double compound past’ (Carruthers 1993; Engel 1990; 1994; 1996; Paesani 2001), which goes back to the OF period and is found in particular in temporal clauses (Charaud 2000: 647).

In principle, P, S and O can all be realised as a possessive determiner. The nominals in (26a, b) are both three ways ambiguous: Jean/sa can denote the subject of the photo (O), the taker of the photo (S) or the owner of the photo (P): (26) a. la photo de Jean the photo of J. ’s photo’ b. sa photo his photo ‘his photo’ However, the possibility of realising one of these dependants as a possessive determiner is sensitive to the presence of other dependants, and the generalisation is that the realised dependant most highly ranked on the thematic hierarchy alone can appear as a possessive determiner.
