Dear Olivier,

In my experience, the current most broadly used definition of a temporal expression is that from TimeML. You can find all the details here: http://timeml.org/site/index.html

It builds on the work of the TIDES project, a relevant late report from which can be found at http://www.mitre.org/sites/default/files/pdf/ferro_tides.pdf , which has more information on some nuances of temporal expressions than the TimeML site.

Others have found the TIMEX2 interpretation to be more useful; example work using that standard is: (1) http://www.newdesign.aclweb.org/anthology-new/D/D10/D10-1089.pdf (2) http://dbs.ifi.uni-heidelberg.de/fileadmin/Team/jannik/publications/StroetgenGertz_WikiWarsDE_GSCL2011.pdf

All the best,
