Quand la syntaxe est embarquée dans la construction discursive : l’énoncé chez Benveniste et chez Culioli

Abstract : The question of the division between syntax and discourse remains a live issue for modern linguistics. Benveniste and Culioli reject such a division. We will review their arguments, as well as the caracterization they give for such products of both syntax and discourse. The sentence is defined by Benveniste as a predication unit; for Culioli it is organized by a “schem of lexis”, that is a predicative schem with a more temporal dimension; in both case, syntax is given as being based on cognition. As for the formal aspect of the utterances analyzed, they are viewed as layouts of morphosyntactic units, rather than as structured configurations. Both linguists apply a heuristic approach linked for Culioli to the search for proliferating embedded structures that call for a dynamic conception of cognition in terms of mental gestures.
