Project: Abverbial expressions of "scalarity" in French

01-JAN-05 – 31-DEC-08

The project will describe the concept of scalarity through quantifying and intensifying French abverbs. The use of these abverbs will be inventorised and a typology of the various semantic relations will be proposed. The aim is to check if the concept of scalarity will be able to account for the great diversity in use and meaning of abverbs under examination.
