Abstract

One can find in French expressions which are equivalent to adverbs ending in <i>-ment</i>, e.g. <i>écouter d'une oreille attentive /distraite</i> as compared to <i>écouter attentivement /distraitement</i>, or <i>dessiner d'une main habile /dessiner d'un crayon habile</i> as compared to <i>dessiner habilement</i>. These expressions, which are considered to be relatively fixed, or semi-compositional, are being studied with ever-increasing precision by linguists and lexicographers. This paper sets out the criteria which define these expressions in Lexicon-Grammar Theory.
