This article pursues a series of studies on French expressions commonly called “prepositional locutions” whose dual goal is, first, the treatment of their lexical status and, second, the possibilities of anaphorisation by a simple suppression of their complement, operation often attributed to the procedure of ellipsis. These studies have concentrated each on the analysis of a specific semantic class of prepositional locutions: spatial, temporal and notional (more precisely, final, causal and consecutive) expressions (cf. Adler, 2006, to appear a, b). The present paper constitutes an additional stage in the puzzle already rather advanced of the analysis of the prepositional locutions, and covers other semantic subclasses: concession, opposition, addition and destination.
