Abstract

François Thuillier : À l'emporte-pièce : de la métaphore à l'outil This article is based on the hypothesis that the meaning of à l'emporte-pièce can be accounted for through an examination of the different lexical units it is made of. We therefore start with defining what makes up the identity of each word contained in the expression. Then we show that the global semantic features of à l'emporte-pièce result from the interaction between its components. The purpose of our paper is to question the traditional views according to which the meaning of a set expression is, as such, not liable to be analysed.
