Le Locuteur Analogique ou la grammaire mise à sa place

Abstract : Putting a priority on the study of linguistic dynamics i) eases their understanding with respect to each other and ii) 'explains' grammatical properties as a side effect. No disjunction between a grammar (today) and the dynamics (tomorrow ?). The levers are analogy and proximality : some accesses are proximal (= cheaper), others are more costly. A precise and operable model of linguistic productivity consists of:
- a statics, the 'plexus', inscriptions that are meshed, exemplarist, and contextual. Among 'empty' terms (free of properties), 'copositionings' take place.
- dynamics which are cognitively founded. The syntactic analysis of an uterance is redefined as structure mappings piled up onto one another.
'Systemic productivity' obtains in pluridimensional paradigms and is explained without syntactic features (they are artifactual and their learnability is questionable). A model of acquisition predicts the sigmoid curves which are general empiry in acquisition.
