Resumé

L’article examine les différences au niveau textuel entre langues exocentriques et langues endocentriques. Il prend son point de départ dans les relations anaphoriques en italien et en danois, et dans la distribution des anaphores coréférentielles, associatives et résomptives. La valeur informationnelle et textuelle des anaphores semble correspondre à la distribution lexicale du « poids informationnel » dans les noms et les verbes exocentriques et endocentriques ; la distribution des anaphores révèle, de plus, des différences typologiques dans les structures textuelles. L’article montre que plusieurs de ces particularités structurales s’expliquent par des différences entre les « schémas cognitifs » dues à des divergences entre les systèmes lexicaux. Des variations socio-culturelles entre les deux communautés linguistiques contribuent également à la distinction qu’on peut établir entre les structures exocentriques et endocentriques.
