L'impact de la position phrastique sur les fonctions et valeurs des SP adverbiaux : l'exemple des SP en sur et dans

Abstract : The objective of this article is to examine the impact of sentence position on the values and functions of prepositional phrases (PPs) with sur (on) and dans (in). The first part focuses on the range of meanings these PPs carry. We consider to what extent specific semantic values are correlated with sentence position. This is followed by an analysis of the different syntactic roles fulfilled by the PPs. We consider to what extent their semantic values are associated with particular syntactic functions and propose a classification of PPs which includes semantic, syntactic and pragmatic criteria. Situating our study within Charolle's theory of 'Discourse frames' (cf. among others Charolles 1997, Charolles & Pery-Woodley 2005), we examine in a third part the potential textual and organising functions of PPs and contrast this type of structuring with a rather different type of structuring based on thematic progression.
