L’interface syntaxe/prosodie : réinterprétation en discours oral et approche discursive de la prosodie

Abstract : This chapter presents a corpus study of non-canonical English structures used for information packaging – extrapositions, right dislocations, it-clefts, wh-clefts, reversed wh-clefts and so-called « emphatic do ». The relations between the information structure and the prosodic patterns (tonality, tonicity and tones) are analysed and the results show that the canonical (expected) prosody of these structures is not the most frequent one in (semi-)spontaneous speech. It is argued that in discourse the pragmatic functions of the non-canonical structures under study derive from the complex interactions between syntax and prosody, leading to a reinterpretation of the syntactic structures in oral discourse and to a discursive approach of the prosodic analysis.
