De la syntaxe à la sémantique du discours : étude en corpus des constructions en parce que

Abstract : This dissertation offers a study of parce que constructions in oral speech, at the interface between corpus and theoretical linguistics. The corpus under study comprises conversations recorded from four surveys from the PFC (Phonologie du Français Contemporain – Phonology of Contemporary French) project database. The first stage of the annotation process allows the syntactic characterization of said constructions. This (macro-)syntactic annotation of the corpus is then used for the subsequent semantic and pragmatic analysis: the elementary discursive units for our analysis within the SDRT (Segmented Discourse Representation Theory) framework stem from the grouping (or fragmentation) of the previously identified macrosyntactic units. We describe the main types of discourse relations which can represent the contribution of parce que in discourse, and notably highlight the possibilities and constraints inherent to the syntactic relation that is established. To this end, we put forward a new Explanation-type relation, which allows the annotation of parce que in relation to utterance modality. We provide elements in order to identify the terms connected by parce que which confirm the benefit of a twofold analysis of the corpus, from both a syntactic and a discursive point of view.
