Abstract

In this paper, we reject the usual definition of <i>même si </i>(<i>even if</i>) as single conjunction and meaning as 'concessive' one. <i>Même si</i> share similar syntactico-semantic properties with 'conditional', but not 'concessive', (class of) conjunctions. In fact, <i>même si</i> is a conjunctive phrase including the <i>si (if)</i> conditional conjunction and the appropriate conditional-conjunction modifier: <i>même</i> (even). 'Concessive' effect is due to <i>même </i>insertion.<br />Meaning of <i>même si</i> has been refined into two semantic interpretation subcategories according to paraphrastic conditional conjunctive phrases: <i>même à (la) condition [que P]</i> or <i>même dans l'hypothèse [où P].</i>
