« Elle a signé _ ! » Les objets implicites définis non pronominalisables : une version implicite des définis relationnels ?

Abstract : This paper aims to determine whether definite implicite object complements (or DIOs) that are not pronominalizable can be analyzed as relational definites on a semantic level. The paper first shows that prototypical non pronominalizable DIOs, that is, a majority of non pronominalizable DIOs, can be assimilated with relational definites. However, the paper also shows that a fraction of non pronominalizable DIOs behaves like so-called weak definites. But can weak definites themselves be analyzed as relational definites? The paper shows that this hypothesis is challenged by the issue of accounting for scopal properties of weak definites, and thus concludes that it is not possible to subsume the whole set of non pronominalizable DIOs under the category of relational definites.
