Phrasal compounds and the discourse/lexicology interface: “conglomeration” within the French tradition of English lexicology

Abstract : This paper tries to illustrate the relevance of what Benveniste called conglomérés (conglomerates) for the study of English. It shows that conglomerates refer to a set of regular phenomena and account for two general trends of the lexicon : the quest for economy on the one hand and the importance of speech (parole) in the lexicalisation of units on the other hand. By analysing a borderline case of morphology in two senses of the word (morphology vs. syntax and phrases vs. compounds), a case is made for the investigation of a delocutive matrix, the cline between discourse and the lexicon. In that sense, this paper offers a partial review of French approaches to English lexicology within the tradition of enunciative linguistics.
