Variation et francophonie by Aidan Benedict Coveney( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in French and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les treize chapitres de ce recueil, rédigés par des chercheurs antillais nord-américains et européens, donnent un aperçu de l'intérêt et de l'envergure des recherches actuelles sur les variétés du français. Le volume commence par des variétés dont les rapports au français standard sont quelquefois controversés, créoles de l'espace antillais et africain ; il passe ensuite par l'Amérique du nord pour terminer en Europe. Certaines des variétés décrites comptent parmi les moins bien connues, d'autres sont devenues des cas typiques

Pragmatic Constraints on Interrogatives in Spoken French by Aidan Benedict Coveney( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An investigation of interrogative structures in French examined the extent to which variation in the structure of the questions was conditioned by their function. Data are drawn from a corpus containing 177 yes/no questions and 117 wh- questions. Findings suggest the following: (1) in identifying the communicative function of interrogatives, it is necessary to use concepts of discoursal/conversational function in addition to illocutionary forces; (2) in yes/no interrogatives, sv is the unmarked variant, esv being used notably when no response is expected, and for politeness; and (3) in wh- interrogatives, linguistic and discoursal constraints appear to outweigh other pragmatic factors. By way of caution, it is noted that the simultaneous presence of many different factors indicates that it is not always clear what the principal factors motivating the speaker's choice of structure are on a particular occasion.

La forme des interrogatives dans le Corpus suisse de SMS en français : étude multidimensionnelle by Alexander Guryev( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is part of the project FNS Sinergia 136230 "SMS communication in Switzerland: Facets of Linguistic Variation in a Multilingual Country". The aim of the thesis is to provide analysis of the variety of French interrogative structures in the Swiss SMS Corpus. It also attempts to show how the data originating from spontaneous electronic interaction (instant messaging, texting, WhatsApp, etc.) allows us to broaden the scope and to take a new look at the phenomena of syntactic variation. The French language is known for the wide variety of interrogative structures: 3 variants for yes/no questions (Tu vas au cours ?, Vas-tu au cours ?, Est-ce que tu vas au cours ?), and at least six or eight variants for wh- questions (Tu vas où ?, Où tu vas ?, Où vas-tu ?, Où va ton frère ?, Où est-ce que tu vas ?, Qui va au cours ?, Où c'est que tu vas ?, C'est où que tu vas ?). Therefore, our goal is to understand how SMS writers make the choice between available French interrogative structures. The hypothesis of this study is functionalist: it postulates that under the pressure of various linguistic and non-linguistic constraints, the SMS writer chooses that variant which allows him to best achieve given communicative goals. In order to identify different types of constraints or factors that may influence the choice of variants, a multidimensional analysis model is applied which focuses simultaneously on grammatical, interactional and sociolinguistic parameters
