This study is based on the writings and teaching of Gustave Guillaume (1883-1960), one of the earliest proponents of what is today called Cognitive Linguistics.

In most French linguistic studies, the object is so-called standard French, a rather woolly and reductive designation. The particularities of national languages such as Belgian and Quebec French are often forgotten or treated as outlandish facts.

Left detachment constructions (LDs) (e.g. un buffet de campagne, c?est un meuble ) are examined in a corpus of informal spontaneous conversation between educated native speakers of French. The overwhelming majority of these constructions are shown to have a clearly pragmatic motivation. The author?s observations support a view of LD in French as a... more...

The author describes and explains the syntactic and pragmatic properties of the nominal and pronominal elements in sentences of the types Ces Romains ils sont fous and Ils sont fous, ces Romains , which, in spite of their frequent occurrence, have so far received little attention among linguists and grammarians. He argues that far from having the... more...

This book contributes to the current debate on migration policy, focusing on three main elements in the standard migration policy dialogue: the regulation of flows, the integration of immigrants and the impact of labour mobility on development. In particular it argues that the current governance of international migration is both insufficient and inefficient.... more...
