Abstract : These works are parts of the framework of computational linguistic. We focus on the syntax/semantic interface based on generative grammars.
The first part treats of syntax analysis. We introduce Generative Grammars, which are a theoretical approach of syntax, and, then, Stabler minimalist grammars which are a formalism based on generative theory. We analyse the merge operation and we define equivalence for merge and an abstract modelling of lexicon.
The aim of the second part is now the syntax/semantic interface. We introduce a new logic formalism based on mixed logic (both commutative and non-commutative connectors). This formalism is equivalent to GM without SMC. We propose a normalisation (a non canonical one) for mixed logic which checks the sub-formula property. Then, these properties are both checked for Lambek calculus with product.
Syntactic analysis is performed by proof. On this proof, we synchronise a semantic calculus, using Curry-Howard isomorphism. Terms are based on lambda mu-calculus, and include DRT properties (Discourse Representative Theory).
The last part treats some linguistic phenomena. We focus on the cliticisation in french and propose a categorial minimalist grammar for french.
