Syndète, asyndète et ambiguïté

Abstract : Meaning construction is often said to be even more a source of ambiguity when there is no connector. And yet, the causal value, in the broad sense of the term, can take a construction with or without a connector. When we use the term causal value, we mean the semantic and logical linkings involving the notions of cause, consequence and condition. Sometimes, connectors may be ambiguous. Sometimes, rather complex semantic and logical linkings can be constructed without a connector and without any ambiguity. Instances are utterances involving irrealis. We need to find out the different parameters which come in the construction of meaning. What kind of markers do we deal with? Are connectors sufficient to construct meaning? Are there other parameters other than markers? Is there a parameter we find in any case? Sometimes, utterances with a connector, can be manipulated and turned into utterances without a connector but with the same meaning. Are connectors always essential, necessary to construct meaning?
