In this paper interpretation principles for simple and complex frame-adverbial expressions are presented. Central to these principles is a distinction between phases and periods together with the temporal hierarchy, where multiple scales of time and relations can be expressed. A system, CLOCKWISE, has been implemented which interprets Swedish temporal expressions according to the principles outlined in the paper.
