Approche quantitative en syntaxe : l'exemple de l'alternance de position de l'adjectif épithète en français

Abstract : This article presents a statistical analysis of syntactic data that aims to better understand the phenomenon of position alternation displayed by attributive adjectives with respect to nouns in French. We show how we used the corpora available for French (the French Treebank and the Est-Républicain corpus) as well as ressources provided by Natural Language Processing for our study. The proposed model contains 13 variables based on properties of the adjectival phrase, the adjectival item and on frequency constraints. This model is capable to predict the position of adjectives at more than a 93\% rate. We especially focus on the importance of constraints based on usage for the choice of position for the adjective, in particular the frequency of contexts in which it appears.
