This contribution investigates the syntactic conceptions of, and the diagramming system introduced by, the American grammarian Stephen Watkins Clark (1847), who introduced the first comprehensive syntactic diagramming system. The structure of the English sentence is illustrated by agglutinated “bubbles” expressing the relations between words by the means of their relative position. The sentence consists of two or three horizontally aligned bubbles containing words that are called principal elements. These principal elements can be complemented with adjunct elements, that appear in bubbles attached below them. For grammatical words the conventions differ depending on whether the grammatical word is a preposition or a conjunction. Coordination is never named as such, but there is an orthogonal abstract relation that connects elements performing the same role in a “compound” construction. The system allows recursiveness in two different ways: by wrapping bubbles into other bubbles, thus following a mereological logic (part- whole relations) close to IC analysis or by hierarchically aggregating bubbles that resemble dependency trees. Clark's conceptions thus prefigure modern graphical formalizations. [less ▲]

Several of Tesnière's drafts and files that remain available at the Bibliothèque nationale de France provide materials for a renewed approach of the concept of mot-phrase (lit. ‘sentence word’, also called phrasillon), a category close to the traditional heterogeneous class of interjections. In the Éléments de syntaxe structurale, Tesnière states that the mot-phrase is used as a sentence and that it lacks syntactic properties at a lower level. It is therefore considered irrelevant for the study of syntax. However, this stance contrasts with Tesnière's previous views on the matter. This paper contains an edited version of a draft entitled Chapitre I. - Les mots phrases ou phrasillons. Comparing the contents delivered by this document with Tesnière's published works helps us understand the difficulties he experienced to classify the mot-phrase among other parts of speech with respect to their syntactic properties : their relationships with governor words and dependents, as well as their behaviours in the system of transfer.

This paper investigates the PoS classification of French words that are called, a.o., _interjections_, ‘_sentences-words_’ (mots-phrases) (Tesnière), ‘_discourse markers_’ (_marqueurs discursifs_) (in pragmatics) or _inserts_ (Biber). Among this kind of words, lexemes such as _oui_ ‘yes’ and _voilà_ ‘there is...’ belong to the class that comprehends finite verbs as archetypal members. This class can be labelled predicative. Other lexemes, mainly those generally labeled as interjections or inserts belong to a class named locutive. From a macrosyntactic perspective (Blanche-Benveniste et al.), members of this class are the main units in the structure of the utterance and they convey an intrinsic illocutionary point of view (Austin). The syntactic properties of locutive words are investigated from a perspective inherited from the transfer mechanism introduced by Tesnière. It appears that interrogative and exclamative pronouns and conjunctions are actually able to transfer units into locutives. [less ▲]

Syntactic analyses describe grouping operations that explain how words are combined to form utterances. The nature of these operations depends on the approach. In a constituency-based approach, grouping operations are ordered, or stratified, part-whole relations. In a dependency-based approach, grouping operations identify a governor (or head), i.e. they are directed hierarchical relations between words. It is possible to convert a constituency tree into a dependency tree by dereifying the nodes, by identifying the governor and by removing the stratification of the part-whole relations. Polygraphs combine the two types of information into a single structure and are therefore a more powerful formalism. By relaxing constraints, polygraphs also allow to underspecify both kinds of information. [less ▲]

This paper scrutinizes various dependency-based representations of the syntax of function words, such as prepositions. The focus is on the underlying formal object used to encode the linguistic analyses and its relation to the corresponding linguistic theory. Two types of representation are proposed for the encoding of syntactic properties and applied for function words. Although the mathematical object introduced here encodes a dependency-based analysis, it does not consist in a tree. It is rather more general than a graph (it allows edges to be vertices of other edges) and is called a polygraph. [less ▲]
