The temporal relations that hold between events de- scribed by successive utterances are often left implicit or underspecified. We address the role of two phenom- ena with respect to the recovery of these relations: (1) the referential properties of tense, and (2) the role of temporal constraints imposed by coherence relations. We account for several facets of the identification of temporal relations through an integration of these.
