Coréférence et identité : le problème des référents évolutifs

Abstract : This paper approaches the question of referents that are subject, along the discourse, to transformations, although they can be referred to anaphorically. The question raised is thus the possibility of a coreferential relation, whereas the material identity is not conserved. This contribution discusses the main solutions given to this problem (in particular the mental models thesis) and leads to the conclusion of the necessary distinction between coreference and material identity : pronouns, although they imply coreference, are sensitive to transformations of their referents.
