Structures de la Pensee est une etude detaillee des formes verbales du francais et de l'anglais a la lumiere d'une nouvelle theorie. Presentant les modes verbaux, les valeurs temporelles, les aspects et les modes de proces en fonction des differentes operations mentales qu'ils representent et/ ou des differents angles sous lesquels l'on percoit la realite, elle fournit des apercus tres fins de la semiologie grammaticale des formes verbales des deux langues et de leur fonctionnement dans le discours. Pour ce qui est de l'efficacite de l'approche comme outil descriptif, cela ne peut faire aucun doute, car on en trouve la demonstration dans tous les emplois, meme les plus exotiques. Structures de la pensee is a detailed study of the verb forms of French and English based on a refreshingly new approach to linguistic analysis. Describing verb moods, tenses, aspects and modes of verbal process in terms of the structures of abstract thought and presenting the verb forms of the indicative as bundles of distinctive features, the work provides interesting new insights into the grammatical meaning and function of the verb forms in discourse. As for the effectiveness of the method as a descriptive tool, it is demonstrated by its precise explanation of even the most exotic verb usage.
