Détachement et corrélation à l'épreuve du français médiéval

Abstract : The notions of detachment and correlation, which are topics of debate in Modern French, raise even more issues when it comes to Medieval French. After pointing out the difficulties encountered in handling the notion of detachment for this period, bot from a formal and a semantic point of view, this paper deals with the specificities of the relationship between coordination and subordination for the Medieval period. In relation with the notions of coordination and subordination, and of detachment to a lesser extent, we then turn to the analysis of certain correlative structures, in which strong variations make it difficult to interpret the link between their segments. The study focuses more specifically on how certain elements take up an interclausal linking function and highlights the differentiated evolution of these structures towards a stronger syntactic and semantic integration of the constituents in some cases, and towards a loosening of the morpho-syntactic links in others.
