Rien, un nom de nombre

Abstract : At first glance, it seems that "rien" in combination with the morpheme of negation "ne" and appears so as an adverb of negation. No reference book attests this adverbial use. 'Nothing' is a name and the particle is "ne" expletive because of the negative sense of the lexeme. But it is especially a head in an adnominal or relative structure. The deletion of the adnominal or relative element is a consequence of a preservation of the face and we can keep this 'rien' as a delocutive.
