Abstract:

This volume presents a reasoned study of the discourse connectives of 
attainment of the French language. For the most part, the studies on 
connectives are based on referentialist descriptive frameworks, which are 
sustained more or less explicitly on what we have called the general problem 
of causality, the epistemological foundation of a scientific paradigm which 
has been used for centuries but which, in our opinion, is now outdated. In the 
first place, we have submitted this old paradigm to critical debate, showing 
the limits of its scientific validity. Next, we have placed ourselves in a non-
referentialist linguistic framework, the Theory of Argumentation in the 
Language-System, developed by the French linguist Oswald Ducrot, in which 
we have formulated a new descriptive proposal for discourse connectives, 
taking into account both the argumentative configuration and the polyphonic 
configuration of each of the discourse dynamics generated around a given 
connective. We have described the argumentative configuration in terms of 
semantic blocks, and the polyphonic configuration in terms of discourse 
algorithms, original and innovative heuristic instruments with which we 
attempt to stimulate a new approach to language more in line with the general 
scientific approaches of the 21st century, and with the new scientific 
paradigm which is currently valid.
