Abstract

This paper explores some iconic properties of melodic contours in French as vocal gestures possibly similar to other kinds of body gesture or to gestures in general. The melodic contours considered specifically are correlative to the conclusive sentence modality, the <i>continuation majeure</i> and the postfix or theme in a rheme-theme division of the sentence.
