Dissertation Abstract:

In this dissertation, we study the syntactic and semantic properties of
simplex coordinations (Paul ira á Londres et á Venise) vs. doubled
coordinations (Paul ira et á Londres et á Venise) and their impact on a
general theory of coordination. The comprehensive description of both
structures provides empirical evidence for an exocentric analysis of
coordination as a specific hierarchy of constructions, capturing both the
general properties of coordinate structures, which are distinct from those
headed constructions, and the fine-grained properties of simplex vs doubled
coordinations in the grammar of French. The systematic comparison of both
structures also provides arguments against analyses appealing to ellipsis
to account for non-constituent coordinations (Paul offrira (et) un disque á
Marie et un livre á Jean) and coordinations of unlike categories (Marie
adore (et) les réceptions et qu'on lui apporte des fleurs). Our main
results are compatible with different theoretical frameworks as long as one
recognizes the central role of constructions in the grammar. We provide an
HPSG formalization that explicitly encodes our syntactic analyses and
assures their overall consistency.
