Linguistic Field: Discourse Analysis
Subject Language: French
Abstract: Cet article s'attache à l'analyse approfondie de la périphrase auxiliaire aller / venir + V. infinitif dans un emploi peu documenté que la tradition nomme allure extraordinaire. Il prend appui sur un corpus de 500 occurrences relevé dans divers genres du discours (journalistique, littéraire, conversationnel, électronique). On propose dans un premier temps une description générale du fonctionnement de l’extraordinaire; on explicite ensuite précisément cet effet de sens, avant d'expliquer le mécanisme de sa production.
