Analogie et lexique construit : quelles preuves ?

Abstract : This paper begins with a brief historical review of the concept of analogy, with special attention to generative and postgenerative work. In the first part it is argued that, within the present theoretical context, it would be fruitful to explore further the possible uses of analogy in the context of word-formation. The second part of the paper presents a series of arguments in favour of the relevance of analogy. Indeed, though there is a consensus with respect to the idea that analogy is indeed a regulating principle for unmotivated lexical items, there has been much discussion as to its relevance in the more general context of regular word formation.
