Prosody, Syntax, Macrosyntax

Philippe Martin

UFRL Université Paris 7 Denis Diderot, France

Most of research work on French intonation has been conducted on prepared speech data (i.e. read speech), with various approaches ranging to purely syntactic (Rossi), Autosegmental-Metrical (Sun and Fougeron) or Phonosyntactic (Martin). This paper examines the bases of the phonosyntactic approach extended to spontaneous (nonprepared) speech data, described syntactically from a macrosyntactic point of view (Blanche-Benveniste, Deulofeu).
