Abstract

This paper analyzes the properties of discourses in French and in Korean which express a direct causal relation. Our work leads us to observe a striking parallelism between the two languages although they are very distant from each other. It goes considerably further than Danlos's remarks, which are confined to the analogy between Romance languages and English. Furthermore, it is very interesting to see that Danlos's hypotheses are language-independent and that Pustejovsky's event structure and the relations of generalization and particularization are notions which can be applied in the same way in all these languages.
