The aim of this paper is to analyse the combination Voilà pour in modern French. In order to deal with this linguistic item our analysis combines four components: a morphosyntactic component, a lexical component, an enunciative and pragmatic component and a textual component. By doing so, we established that voilà pour X can be interpreted on a deictic or on a textual level. In the first case pour introduces an addressee and in the second, pour is a thematic introducer. Voilà pour is then used at the end of a thematic development and is semantically dependent from a previous textual portion.
