L'inversion "locative" en français, italien et anglais... : ...propriétés syntaxiques, sémantiques et discursives

Abstract : This article aims to isolate the internal syntactic, semantic and discourse properties of the so-called " locative inversion " construction in three languages : French, English and Italian. Its goal is to demonstrate that the syntactic and semantic properties of each of these three components are determined by the specific external function of the construction within the wider discourse : namely, to set up a background situation which will serve as context for the foreground action strand.
