Once again from a substantial point of view, as opposed to the point of view of Cresti 2000 — and as explained in Ferrari et al. 2008 — we have opted for other terms (this time in dialogue with Blanche-Benveniste et al. 1990 and Charolles 1997), we have broadened the concept of the Appendix and we have passed over other information micro-units of a dialogic nature (owing to their non-relevance for the analysis of written text). With regard to linguistic aspects, our point of view differs greatly, however, from that of Cresti 2000: both regarding written and oral speech, we make the assumption that a recognition of the IU boundaries and of their hierarchies (i) combines inference and decoding, and — with respect to this latter — (ii) it results from the modular and equal intertwining of all linguistic levels, giving no priority to intonation.
Le sue cose” — ‘Maria is a woman who loves very much. // Her own things’). â•‡ The boundary between intentional inferences and non-intentional inferences developed by the locutor is not clear-cut, there are also intermediary cases. On this point, see Sperber/Wilson 1986. 30 Angela Ferrari values. We make the assumption that these latter constitute a sub-set of the set of pragmatic values established by language (such as, for example, when we indicate an illocution by means of a type of phrase or a performative verb).
The first section deals, in a general and epistemological manner, with what I conceive as ‘text’ (as opposed to ‘discourse’) and its structuring principle. I shall proceed by defining the nature of the contribution made by language (vocabulary, morphology, syntax, punctuation) to the identification of text structures. In successive sections, I shall focus on the problem of the segmentation of the paragraph into its constituent units. e. the Information Units. These two types of units will be precisely defined from the point of view of their semantico-pragmatic substance and their linguistic manifestation.
