Abstract:[A Communicative Perspective in Romanian Utterance Analysis] In this paper we analyze the Romanian utterances from the communicative act perspective, aiming to explain the role of intonation in generating the hierarchy of Information Packaging Units (IPUs). In our view, IPUs at both low and high levels connect one or two referential constituents to an “object” general reference constituent. The paper introduce the “predicative” term for the “object” general reference constituent in order to outline the predicative meaning of IPUs. A predicative constituent can or cannot correspond to a predicative mark at the syntactic level. In the negative case, all predicative constituents of IPUs have in common certain melodic cues at the intonation level. In the second section, a basic IPU structure is presented. In the third section a connection between the constituents of a multi-IP IPU is illustrated. In the last section, we conclude on the advantage of adopting a communicative perspective in utterance partitioning.
