Récit, Discours Direct et Discours Indirect : passerelles référentielles en moyen français

Abstract : This paper, concerning middle French, seeks to show some specifics mechanism of referential continuity in direct and indirect speech through the choice of the anaphoric expressions forming in chains (co-reference and anaphora associated). From this point of view, the data examined here reveal a different processing between referent-topic and referent-speakers and precise its specific processing and its role as for the choice of anaphoric expressions. Moreover, it will be observed through these anaphoric expressions, that an intra-sequential and extra-sequential memory and, furthermore, the characteristic of indirect speech (and potentially free indirect speech) which can combine direct speech characteristics with the narrative’s ones. Thus, it’s possible to call it a referential crucible or frontier runner between narrative and/or direct speech.
