Example text

If one attempts to outline the general functioning of the term, a certain num­ ber of uses can be retained as basic (cf. Le Goffic 1992) : a) the interrogative pronoun as in Que fais-tu ? "), Que faire ? ") or, used indirectly, in Je ne sais que faire ("I don't know what to do" ; indirect interrogative examples are more difficult to find). b) "relative without an antecedent", as in Advienne que pourra ("Come what may" "Come whatever may [happen]"), parallel to the use of qui in Rira bien qui rira le dernier ("He who laughs last laughs longest").

If things are to be absolutely discrete, this means that each unit is to be confined to its own place, like a cell or an atom, adjacent to the next one, and so on. The units will not touch each other and will remain by definition separate. Where the contradiction arises, is when one unit gives rise to two, in the process of dissociation, or conversely when two units become a single one, in the process of fusion. Now this does occur, and the history of language bears witness to this, if not abundantly, at least clearly.
