In this paper, we propose a generalization of continuous-time processed defined by Xt=f(ts)dWs, to the case of f being a distribution. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for f, such that the obtained process is a second order distribution process. We study the moments and the regularity of these processes. In addition, we investigate a generalization to processes with stationary increments.
