In this article the author presents synchronic and diachronic evidence that the ‘conjunction’ when introducing adverbial clauses is really a free relative, which is interpreted as ‘at a/the time at which’. The author shows that this conclusion is of crucial importance when investigating the temporal structure expressed by when and the tenses used in the two clauses of a sentence involving a head clause and an adverbial when-clause.
