Journal Article フランス語とイタリア語における定冠詞の分布について
Distribution of the Definite Articles in French and Italian

藤田, 健

The definite article occupies the primary position in the article system in French and in Italian. We examine the syntactic distribution of the definite article in a corpus (a French text and its Italian translation, and an Italian text and its French translation), taking into account the distributional correspondence between the definite article and other determiners, the null article included. We conclude that the definite article has a close connection, especially in Italian, with the null article and a certain functional continuity with the indefinite article. It is also shown that the Italian definite article assumes a part of the functions of the possessive adjectives in French.
