Un autre regard sur la répartition des rôles entre as et like dans la construction de la comparaison

Abstract : As and like are privileged markers as far as the expression of comparison in English is concerned. They have been the subject of numerous works. Here I aim to show that these markers make up a new system in the English language. As such, each of them has a specific function as soon as comparison (following the structure as/like det. N) is to be expressed. Consequently I am going to study the principles of equation and location again. Indeed these two principles underlie the way as and like operate and I think that they rest on preconstruction. Not preconstruction in the accepted sense of the word, but a kind of preconstruction proper to each marker.
