Intensité, valeur de vérité et univers de croyance

Abstract : In this article, I try to explain the semantic functionning of the French intense utterances which connect propositions which have no apparent semantical relation but are nevertheless related by connectors : si... alors (if... then), et (and), ou (or), autant que (as much as). For instance : Si tu as diné à la Tour d'Argent, alors moi je suis le Pape ! (If (it is true that) you had dinner at the Savoy, then I'm the Queen Elizabeth !) A semantical link exists however, which is essentially based on the truth value of propositions. For that purpose, I chose the possible worlds and universes of belief theory (Martin, 1987). This particular way of expressing intensity is thus clear.
