Abstract

We examine here several constructions that are characteristic of a subclass of French subordinating conjunctions termed "consecutive", e.g. à tel point que, tellement que, etc. In some of these constructions, the conjunction alone ( without the subordinate clause introduced by que) can be permuted to various points of the main clause, so that it is perceived as a sentence adverb.In other constructions, a special case highlights as category change in the subordinating conjunction and so in the process itself: subordination gives way to a pure coordination of sentences. This is the second phenomena of this type that we have been able to observe in our general study of subordination in French.
