El tratamiento lexicográfico de de toute façon, de quelque façon y d'une certaine façon en el DEC - Llopis Cardona, Ana
In this paper, I will examine the entries of the discourse markers de quelque façon, d'une certaine façon and de toute façon of the Dictionnaire explicatif et combinatoire du français contemporain (V.III) that Igor Mel'cuk leaded in the University of Montréal.

I will start with a linguistic description of these discourse markers in different levels. I will also explain the main aspects about macrostructure: de quelque façon and d'une certaine façon are recorded in different...

It the light of this, it is the purpose of this paper to show how lexicographic data can provide evidence in favour of adopting a cognitive-linguistic perspective...
