Revue Tranel

Revue Tranel
The TRANEL collection (TRAvaux NEuchâtelois de Linguistique), journal of the Institute of Linguistics and Communication of the University of Neuchatel, established in 1980, is published twice a year. The volumes are published on paper, but the entire collection is also available free of charge on RERO doc. Its directions are various : semantics, pragmatics, syntax, speech therapy, sociolinguistics, conversational analysis, bilingualism, terminology, diachronic change, variation, language skills, etc. The journal provides an overview of research at the Institute of Linguistics and Communication, it also provides an opportunity for researchers from other backgrounds to offer original themes and begin editing an issue.
It works on the principle of peer review, but reserves itself the right to refuse publication of an article, even after revision, that would be considered of insufficient scientific quality by experts.

Fasel Lauzon, Virginie

Thus, the purpose of this paper is to study how French-speaking children take into account the shared knowledge with the adult using syntactic constructions to introduce referents in narratives, the...
