Abstract (in English): 

This paper studies the possibilities of temporally dynamic digital texts. Temporal dynamics may be either dependent on the reader's use of time, or independent of it. Using the categories defined in narratology as our starting point, we outline a list of simple functions that allow a very complex temporal manipulation of narrative digital texts. We will also describe a set of authoring tools, Discourse Timer, which is specifically designed to employ these functions.
