Motifs textuels spécifiques au genre policier et à la littérature “blanche”

Abstract : Textual patterns specific to detective novels and "white" literature. This study aims to analyze textual patterns specific to French crime and general fiction. Patterns were selected according to morphosyntactic, semantic, specificity and dispersion criteria. The focus of attention is on the patterns surrounding the noun phrase la porte (the door) in the detective novel, and patterns found alongside the verb écrire (to write) in general fiction. Consideration will be given to all the different realizations of the patterns in question, i.e. their minimal realizations, their syntagmatic extensions and their paradigmatic variations. From the point of view of linguistics, our description of these patterns seeks to make a contribution to the study of specific phraseological phenomena. From the perspective of stylistics, our exploration of the discursive functions of the patterns under survey aims to establish new criteria both for the definition of particular subgenres of popular fiction and for the characterization of literary language.
