One of the central questions that any description of associative anaphor (Nous arrivâmes dans un village. L'église était située sur une hauteur) implies is that of the role which stereotypic knowledge plays in its establishment. There are two conflicting answers. One maintains that the associative relation is of semantic or a priori order. The other, on the contrary, asserts that cognition and discourse are responsible for such anaphoric connections. The aim of this paper is to show that, despite their attractive power, the arguments and examples invoked by the second one, are not sufficient to finally carry the day: associative anaphors works with stereotyps.
