Syntaxe des proverbes binaires : coordinations et subordinations

Abstract : Works on binary proverbs have constantly brought new thoughts to the involved researchers in order to define the sentencious postulate in its syntactic and semantic dimensions. The assumption of a semantic pattern of operation based on the involvement of the terms of the postulate developed first by Riegel, and then by Anscombre and Kleiber (as of 1994) establishes proverbial postulate. The implication, which connects the two parties of a binary proverb is certainly present in the vast majority of proverbs. In this case, the syntactical parties of the statement can be described through the semantic involvement and through parataxis or asyndeton syntactically because no formal element exists to specify the type of relationship established between both parties. In comparison to this system, however, some proverbs question the validity of this property for the overall majority of the proverbs. The objective of this research is to analyze the presence of other models (including case and copulative adversative coordination) because the syntactic structure can affect the semantic domain in the sense that the relationship between parties of the proverb may be significantly different.
