Simplement, as a Metalinguistic Operator

Argumentation 13 (3):275-295 (1999)
This paper aims to provide a description of a metalinguistic use of simplement, one which occurs primarily in ce n'est pas que P simplement Q constructions. The two main points that will be raised concern the nature and function of the negation preceding P, and the meaning of simplement, which, following Anscombre and Ducrot, I will construe in procedural terms
