Some Unformalised Problems in the Representation of Real vs. Unreal Entities in French and English.
McLure, Roger; Reed, Paul
IRAL, v26 n3 p201-16 Aug 1988
Explores unformalized problems arising from different linguistic representations and non-representations of the categorical distinction between the real and unreal in French and in English. Because the different sensitivities to these oppositions are not acknowledged by manuals and not formalized by dictionary examples of usage, the differences prove a constant source of category-mistake problems among anglophone students of French.
