Privativité : construction d'un concept comparatif et application à la dérivation adjectivale en allemand

Abstract : The article deals with privative derivational patterns in German and is centered on those adjectives using the morphemes -frei ('-free'), -los ('-less') and -arm ('poor'), in a contrastive perspective with French, where similar meanings are rarely expressed through adjectives. First, the author presents the different forms at stake and their respective usage in the nominal phrase, including the different kinds of privativity represented. In the same part, the notion of affixoid used for -free and -arm is dismissed for methodological reasons. The second part is concerned with building a comparative concept (in the sense of Haspelmath, 2010) of privativity (PRIVATIVITE) in order to facilitate contrastive analyses. This leads to re-examining and amending the proposals made by Fandrych (1993) on German. Finally, a typology of privative meanings is presented.
