OVER ou un traitement comparé de la « polysémie » en énonciation et en cognition

Abstract : This article undertakes a contrastive study of polysemy by comparing two recent analyses of over, in a cognitive framework and in an enunciative framework. The first part presents a critical reading of Evans & Tyler 2001, in which polysemy is regarded as a grid of connected values stemming from a so-called "protoscene" which corresponds to a primitive spatial scenario. The second part offers a critical overview Gilbert 2003, in which over is analyzed as a combination of formal operations that do not imply any spatial primitives. These enunciative operations are based on predefined concepts that can be applied to the study of any other linguistic markers. Yet, this article will argue that the outright rejection of spatial dimensions in the enunciative approach makes it difficult to account for basic locative values. As a consequence, the third part explores the possibility of providing a theoretical gateway – possibly through the use of topology - to analyze spatial as well as other uses by means of formal operations only.
