Abstract [en]

In this paper it is shown that the degree of morphological determination of the speaker’s epistemic attitude towards the protasis and the apodosis of canonical content conditionals is identical in French, Italian and Spanish, whereas when these constructions are reported in (Free) Indirect Speech in the past, the morphological underdetermination of the epistemic attitude varies considerably between the three languages, reaching complete neutralization in Italian.

Abstract [fr]

Dans cet article, nous montrons que le degré de détermination morphologique de l’attitude épistémique du locuteur vis-à-vis de la protase et de l’apodose des « conditionnelles de contenu » canoniques est identique en français, en italien et en espagnol, alors que, quand ces constructions sont rapportées en discours indirect (libre) au passé, la sous-détermination de l’attitude épistémique varie sensiblement d’une langue à l’autre, allant jusqu’à la neutralisation totale en italien.
