Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the status of the adverbial determinants (also referred to as situants) in the sentence and in the communicative structure of the sentence with regard to the sentence prosody. Data from spontaneous speech and texts read by a broadcaster are used to contrastively analyse the situant with the rest of the utterance focussing on the pause. It aims at determining the environment in which the pause would be typical. The analysed speech data also show whether the situant is stressed in the sentence and allow determining the intonation it bears.
