Abstract:

This volume presents a reasoned study of the discourse connectives of
attainment of the French language. For the most part, the studies on
connectives are based on referentialist descriptive frameworks, which are
sustained more or less explicitly on what we have called the general problem
of causality, the epistemological foundation of a scientific paradigm which
has been used for centuries but which, in our opinion, is now outdated. In the
first place, we have submitted this old paradigm to critical debate, showing
the limits of its scientific validity. Next, we have placed ourselves in a non-
referentialist linguistic framework, the Theory of Argumentation in the
Language-System, developed by the French linguist Oswald Ducrot, in which
we have formulated a new descriptive proposal for discourse connectives,
taking into account both the argumentative configuration and the polyphonic
configuration of each of the discourse dynamics generated around a given
connective. We have described the argumentative configuration in terms of
semantic blocks, and the polyphonic configuration in terms of discourse
algorithms, original and innovative heuristic instruments with which we
attempt to stimulate a new approach to language more in line with the general
scientific approaches of the 21st century, and with the new scientific
paradigm which is currently valid.
