Temporal semiotics is iconic of movements. It was found in music but seems to be applied in all kind of media. The paper briefly reminds its nature and displays a mathematical model of the signifier. This model uses classes of equivalence of functions. These classes are named “temporal functions”, they must be qualified of pseudo functions. The paper introduces some experiments made in a digital poem, which implements some of them.
