Polysémie, usages et fonctions de « voilà »
[“Voilà”: Polysemy, Uses, and Functions]
Ed. by Col, Gilles / Danino, Charlotte / Bikialo, Stéphane
Aims and Scope
The use of voilà in French is rapidly increasing. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon, the authors point out explanatory factors that lead them to a functional hypothesis: by gathering scattered pieces of information and turning them into a perceptible ensemble, voilà enhances cognitive grouping.
