  • Phrases figées illocutoires: quelle interprétation sémantique?
    Author Náray-Szabó, Márton
    Issue Vol. XI/2009/1
    Category Linguistica
    DOI 10.1556/Verb.11.2009.1.10
    Pages pp. 153-165
    Keywords idiomaticity, illocutionary act, bound utterance, morphological constraint, French
    Abstract Bound utterances like A votre santé!; Tu vois!; Ça va! are frequent reactions to more or less well-defined speech situations. Many of them bear idiomatic properties, even though linguists sometimes do not regard them as such. We first give an account on discourse acts from a lexicalist point of view, that is, in terms of argument structure. After that, we provide a full analysis on illocutionary frozen sentences based on the notion of illocutionary predicate. Parting from these theoretical considerations, we discuss the results of an investigation carried out on some 200 French expressions. Examined features are morphological, lexical and syntactical constraints. As a result, evidence is shown that idiomaticity in these utterances has properties that no other types possess.
  • Pragmatique et sémantique des phrases figées situationnelles
    Author Náray-Szabó, Márton
    Issue Vol. VIII/2006/2
    Category Iuvenilia
    DOI 10.1556/Verb.8.2006.2.17
    Pages pp. 473-493
    Keywords idiomaticity, pragmatics, semantics, subjectivity, dialogicity
    Abstract Frozen subject idioms can be classified into three, pragmatically based classes: evocatives, evaluatives, and diologic. These groups are characterized by diverse syntactic behaviour. In this paper, we provide evidence that the three classes represent separate degrees of subjectivity in the language, and that this property increases parallel to that of being situationally bound.
