La modification adjectivale en anaphore associative : le cas de l'église romane

Abstract : Adding a modifier in the anaphoric NP can impede the good formation of the associative anaphora. If, in the famous example ofthe village and the church (Un village... L''église...), we substitute l''église romane for l''église, the anaphoric séquence becomes déviant. According to G. Kleiber, this kind of séquence is not well-formed because there is no stereotypical relation between the two référents. We can find however well-formed associative anaphors with a non stereotypical adjectival modifier in the anaphoric NP. In this case, two factors, which are linked to the value of existential uniqueness that the definite article présupposes, are décisive : 1° the restrictive or descriptive feature ofthe adjective ; 2° if the adjective has a restrictive feature, the stereotypical amount of " parts".
