For a curve of general type lying in a Euclidean space, we compute the first nonzero term in the Taylor expansion of the principal angles between the osculating k-dimensional subspaces of the curve at the points P0 and P with respect to the length of the arc between P0 and P, whenever the principal angle is not 0 identically by dimension arguments.
