Abstract

This paper looks at the distribution of parce que (subordinating and non-subordinating because) in native and non-native (students at a UK university) speakers of French. In both first and second language data, the use of <i>parce que</i> sequences is found to vary quantitatively from one type of speech situation to another. In the non-native speaker group, this variation is found irrespective of year of study: first year learners are often just as variable (even more so in some instances) as fourth year learners in terms of the distribution of parce que sequences.
