La notion de thème : flou terminologique et conceptuel

Abstract : The notion of theme is caracterized by a great terminological and conceptual vagueness. Four conceptions are prevalent: point of departure, aboutness, known element, and base of communicative dynamism. The shift from one to another one, partly legitimate, should yet be justified. The notion of point of departure however opens the door to confusion and even more so, so does the notion of "known", which often leads to assimilate referent and information, and needs, for that reason, to be further explored.
