n French Studies in Southern Africa - Approche procédurale des séquences de connecteurs français. Contribution à la jurilinguistique

Volume 2009, Issue 39
  • ISSN : 0259-0247

The study considers two types of instructions : the first related to the same semantics' content and the second related to different semantic contents.
