Structure informationnelle et choix référentiel dans les titres de presse

Abstract : In this paper, we emphasise the importance of the notions of identification and activation (Chafe) to study the information structure of newspapers headlines and the constraints on the choice of their referential expressions. The inclusion of these two concepts enables a more efficient and comprehensive description of referential choice than taking into account the only notion of accessibility (Ariel). It also identifies two types of headlines in which the initial referential expression is not subject to the same constraints. These two types of headlines are distinguished by their informational structure: while some are ordinary thetic statements, others are thetic statements with an unlinked initial topic, similar to Lambrecht’s “unlinked topic constructions”.
