Abstract

The goal of this article is to propose a model of semantic description of connectives (here of causal connectives). For a given connective, we proceed first by giving factorization of the morphological forms, thus avoiding redundancy in the description and putting forward equivalencies. A connective is considered to be a predicate, defined by the semantic nature of its arguments which are represented by the predicates of the main and subordinate clauses. We are thus in a position to enumerate the connectives that have the same arguments from a semantic point of view
