1. Mise en parallèle des dimensions linguistiques et prosodiques de l’ironie

Elodie Baklouti, Fabrice Hirsch

Page: 9-17

As part of this paper we want to question the possible link between prosody and linguistic realization of irony. In other words, we want to determine if the speaker who utters an ironic statement transmits prosodic signals to allow his interlocutor to recognize the irony. Indeed, in the literature on the subject, many authors believe that, in some contexts, prosody is the only indication of the interlocutor’s recognition of irony (Eggs, 2009 for ex.)…

3. Anaphores argumentatives Entre l’axe sémantico-pragmatique et l’axe rhétorico-discursif

Françoise Collinet

Pages: 34-59

This paper focuses on two questions. Firstly, how the use of argumentative anaphora to express an opinion / truth dissociation (Perelman) should be described in terms of grammatical / lexical resources. The other question has a methodological dimension: in which aspects could this approach distinguish itself from linguistic or discursive studies?

4. De la perception des disfluences normales et sévères à leurs origines articulatoires

Ivana Didirkova, Ľubomíra Štenclová, Fabrice Hirsch

Pages: 47-59

The aim of this work is to verify which acoustic clues allow listeners to differentiate stutteringlike disfluencies (SLD) and other disfluencies (OD). Furthermore, we would like to distinguish OD and SLD on the articulatory level by observing the laryngeal activity. The results show that listeners’ classification of a disfluency as stuttering-like or other is based on abnormal prosodic structures and localization of the disfluency…

5. Structures rhétorico-lexico-syntaxiques dans l’écrit scientifique

Katarzyna Gabrysiak

Pages: 60-71

The paper offers an analysis of rhetoric-lexical-syntactic structures typical of a scientific text, that is a text that follows quite a stable and rigid structure. A corpus-based analysis, achieved through the use of the Scientext corpora, runs across two dimensions. The first dimension is constituted by the subject matter of the text, while the other dimension concerns the relation between the author of the text and the recipient…

11. Le défigement dans les schémas prédicatifs

Lichao Zhu

Pages: 162-175

Defrozeness and the modifications it brings to a predicative scheme in a frame of functional linguistics are subjects to many formal linguistic researches. While the three primary functions — predicate, argument and determiner — abide by some predicative scheme, incomplete lexical constructions caused by defrozeness require reconstruction of schemes. However, the reconstruction process is somehow conditioned…

14. La construction se faire entendre — quelques pistes de recherches dans le corpus des textes fantastiques

Małgorzata Niziołek

Pages: 208-219

The purpose of this article is the contextual analysis of the se faire entendre construction. The choice of the corpus of fantasy texts is not coincidental. Conducted studies have clearly shown that the functioning of the structure depends on the type of text in which it appears. The same se faire entendre construction gives complete causative structure in the corpus of press, while in the corpus of fantasy texts dominating options are consecutive and inchoative, which block the agent…
