Ask-A-Linguist Message Details
Someone has asked about this word on this site, but I didn't
understand the answer. And I can't translate the word. Nor can the
Compuserv Writer's Forum, but they did find Ask A Linguist (which
has caused all sorts of excitement among the writers)..
Used in this context:
''First the relative order of the two elements excludes, at least for
the francophones, such an interpretation of the syntagme.''
What does syntagme mean? It seems to be a word used to
describe how words are placed?
Thanks for any help you can give!
