La relation dite de “concession” ou l'inférence dominante dominée

Abstract : The aim of this chapter (set in the framework of the French linguist Antoine Culioli’s “Theory of Enunciative Operations”) is to illustrate how language can be a means of domination on the addressee by the speaker – namely a means of symbolic and linguistic, rather than political or sociolinguistic, domination – throughout the study of the “concessive” relation in French and in English. Intersubjectivity is thus at the core of this syntactic, semantic and enunciative (pragmatic) approach, in which the speakers have to reassess their subjective and normative representations in the light of a situation contrary to expectation.
