Abstract

Raffaele SIMONE: Une interprétation diachronique de la "dislocation à droite" dans les langues romanes This paper claims that Right Dislocation (RD), as documented in Romance Languages, is not a movement phenomenon, but the result of associated processes: a change of sentence boundaries by reanalysis, and a change in pragmatic function of the constituents involved. As a consequence, RD starts by being a means for focussing a nominal 'dislocated' constituent, and ends by working as a tool for focussing the verb constituent, so changing variationally its nature, from marked to unmarked structure.
