Abstract: Sentence and text segmentations refer to weight, rank and scope we can attribute to /L/the arguments they contain. In these terms, segmentation of speech units implies a /L/hierarchy between predicate constituents in a finite set of both linguistic operations /L/and relational networks. This basic intervention lists some questions about it, giving /L/a few examples of sentence and text frameworks, within a context of L1-L2.
