Abstract

In this study, we present an original study that aims to show how pedagogically important lexico-grammatical patterns, which are typical of certain genres, can be identified and taught at every educational level, in particular for learners of French for Specific Purposes. These patterns, called Sequential Patterns, constitute a more powerful paradigm than lexical bundles or “P-frames” because they combine different levels of abstraction (word forms, lemmas, POS tags). As they are typical of a textual genre, some of these items reveal the abstract phraseological dimension of texts.
