Whenever vs. when

Hello all,

Could anyone point me in the direction to research done with "whenever"? I've encountered some exciting language use among my teen-aged nieces and nephew who use it in not to mean "every time that" or "whatever time that", but instead "when", i.e. "Whenever I was at my friend's house last weekend, we watched TV all day."

Thanks in advance for any help and/or direction you can offer me! :)
