De et que subordonnants, et variation en français

Abstract : Some francophone areas are particularly prone to language variation owing to the current dynamics of French: the distance from the pressures exerted by norms of linguistics correctness, the social as well as numerical significance of a youthful population, the primacy of communicative factors, and the search for a new language aesthetic… Côte d’Ivoire, often presented as a particular case in the appropriation of French in Africa, is one of these regions. Certain facts concerning the connections between sentences show how syntactic variation is influenced both by the current trends characterising French in several of its varieties and by the dynamics peculiar to the area. The analysis focuses upon the subordinators que ‘that’ and de ‘of’. The corpus is drawn from a variety of sources, as well spoken as written.
