A propos de répétition : entre continuité et rupture

Abstract : Lexical repetition is defined as the occurrence of a given lexical item a second time. This study deals with the notions of continuity and rupture that are inherent to repetition. Thus, after observing certain patterns of repetition by the same speaker, we analyze here the repetitions that occur in the interactions characteristic of radio call-in discussions. The study reveals repetition patterns which recall something that has already been said (« déjà-dit ») and pave the way for something to be said (« à-dire »). Patterns such as « à propos de Xrépété », which are prototypical of transition, appear to also be valuable objects to study utterers’ postures in radio debates.
