De "le temps se passe" à "le temps passe" : un marqueur syntaxique d’une évolution dans le rapport au temps

Abstract : An observation of the data (literature and dictionaries) shows that until the early XXth century the expression "le temps se passe" was very common (even more frequent than the current expression "le temps passe" before the XIXth century). Referring to the properties of the verb "passer" and those of the morphème "se" (as marker of operation), we propose a reflection on the meaning of this diachronic variation, in relation to a historical shift in the dominant representation of time.
