Nous allons à Mons. Du régime à l’adjet

Abstract : If it appeared obvious yesterday, the identification of the function of à Mons in Nous allons à Mons poses today many problems to the teachers and the authors of textbooks. Since the separation of the complements of the verb and the complements of the phrase approved by the Ministry in the 1970s in France, the classification of a complement like "à Mons" is difficult: this complement is non-suppressible (like (in)direct object complements) and it expresses the place (like adverbial complements). The distinction between IOC and AC is reminiscent of the opposition of actants and circumstants (Tesnière 1959). However, Tesnière, soon recognized the limits of this binomial in French. It is in response to this difficulty that the term "adjet" came into existence, which does not, however, bring all the expected answers.
