Les expressions verbales figées de la francophonie: Belgique, France, Québec et Suisse
Lamiroy, Béatrice Klein, Jean-René Labelle, Jacques Leclère, Christian Meunier, Annie Rossari, Corinne
The book is a variational study of French idioms used in France, Québec and the French speaking parts of Belgium and Switzerland. Although the 4 communities share most idioms, each has its own fixed expressions. They are studied here not only from a lexical point of view, but also with respect to their syntax, semantics and pragmatics.
