Ils ont dû se faire censurer ! Facteurs argumentaux et aspectuels dans l’interprétation des constructions passives régies par des verbes modaux, du danois au français

Abstract : POSTPRINT VERSION: A MISTAKE IN THE STATISTIC PART WAS CORRECTED Argumental and aspectual features in the interpretation of passive constructions governed by modal verbs : A contrastive perspective Danish/French. The contribution is devoted to the passive uses the construction se faire + INFINITIVE in co-construction with a modal verb, under special consideration of its opposition to the use of être + PARTICIPLE. The starting point is a consideration from Danish grammar, where two passive constructions are at hand and are associated with different interpretations of modals (one construction favors “subjective”, epistemic readings, the other patterns with “objective”, deontic readings). A pilot study on a corpus of French data confirms that avoir dû se faire + INF. is attested only with epistemic interpretations iff the infinitive designates a controllable process and the passive subject is animated and framed as a malefactive. The conclusion sketches first hypotheses as to the similarities and differences between the modal biases in the interpretation of voice alternation in Danish and French.
