Abstract: This paper examines a left-detachment construction in French which displays a bare noun introduced by comme (Comme omements, ils avaient des colliers et des bracelets en coquillages). The construction is compared with the sentence-internal uses of comme + Noun on the one hand (ils avaient des colliers et des bracelets en coquillages comme ornements), and with another left-detachment construction (en fait de + Noun) on the other hand (En fait d'ornements, ils avaient des colliers et des bracelets en coquillages). The study demonstrates it is not possible to offer a homogeneous description of all cases of left-detachment of comme + Noun and suggestions are made for a typology which is based upon various distributional properties.
