Cas d'absence d'article en français : difficultés des apprenants et proposition d'une analyse unifiée

Abstract : Given the difficulties of the learners of French as a foreign language with the choice of using or not an article in a nominal phrase, we consider that it is necessary for them to apprehend the general function of the determiner in opposition to the cases of the absence of determiner in a nominal expression. Having noted that the usual explanations of these cases, which are based on semantic and grammatical criteria, are insufficient, we put forward an analysis based on a pragmatic-and-discursive factor: the communicative status of a noun within an utterance. We thus consider that the determiner serves to place a noun in the center of attention whereas the absence of determiner marks a de-focalized status of a noun.
