Le mot fois et les expressions dérivées

Abstract : From arithmetical function to introduction of a temporal frame, the noun fois has several different uses. Its categorisation does not fit with traditionnal criterias, the distinction between grammatical and lexical morphemas are not as clear as for other standard names. We aim to analyze the semantic content of the word from its etymology first, then from the main uses in modern French. We organize our study using the reference notion and classify the main uses depending on the ability to refer to an event. We finally go by those results for studying two derived expressions and identify their semantic special features.
