La meilleure façon de marcher. Compléments de manière et propriétés sémantiques du prédicat verbal : l'exemple de marcher

Abstract : This article aims at verifying empirically the existence of restrictions on the choice of manner adverbials depending on the meaning of the VP. The author establishes a list of the most important manner adverbials found with marcher (“to walk”), and then examines with which others (types of) VPs they can be associated. Four sub-types are found: 1°) manner adverbials particular to marcher (“to walk”, for example au pas cadencé “with a regular step”); 2°) manner adverbials mostly associated with motion verbs (e.g. de long en large, “back and forth”); 3°) manner adverbials appearing with VPs belonging to a small number of semantic fields (e.g. en file, “in file”; en rond, “round and round”; en zig-zag, “in zig zag”); 4°) manner adverbials which can be used with a large number of VPs belonging to a large amount of semantic fields (lentement, “slowly”; joyeusement, “merrily”; en silence, “silently”; avec difficulté, “difficultly”).
