Academic Paper


Title: L'aspect de phase en français: le rôle des périphrases verbales
Author: Laurent Gosselin
Institution: University of Rouen
Linguistic Field: Semantics; Syntax
Subject Language: French
Abstract: Cet article porte sur les périphrases aspectuelles (commencer à, être en train de, etc.). On montre que si les grammaires divergent fortement à propos du statut lexical ou grammatical qu'il convient de leur accorder, il est néanmoins possible et pertinent de dissocier deux classes de périphrases, auxquelles on attribue un fonctionnement sémantique nettement différent. Les unes servent à construire un sous-procès, tandis que les autres indiquent un type de visée aspectuelle particulier. Cette analyse prend appui sur des études récentes (Kronning, François, Laca), qui montrent de façon indépendante, mais convergente, qu'il est nécessaire de dissocier deux classes de périphrases aspectuelles sur la base de leur comportement syntaxique.
