Cognition, Société et Langage

"Cognition, Société et Langage" (LeCSeL) est dédié à la recherche empirique en linguistique. Cette recherche adopte une perspective fonctionnelle sur le langage et met l’accent sur la phonétique expérimentale et la construction du sens dans la pratique langagière. L’aspect socio-culturel de la langue et ses effets sur la variation inter- et intra- linguistique sont particulièrement importants dans notre recherche.

Phonétique expérimentale - segmentale et suprasegmentale

Les études sur les aspects sonores du langage effectuées au sein de cet axe portent particulièrement sur la parole atypique (disfluences ; interlangues chez les apprenants des langues étrangères /secondes) ainsi que les dimensions sociales de la parole (genre et langues ; discours et prosodie).

Construction et Sens - la structure holistique et multimodale

La structure langagière est traitée d’une perspective fonctionnelle-cognitive comme un phénomène holistique (non-monulaire), émergente de l’usage et fondamentalement multimodale par nature. Cet axe de recherche s’intéresse surtout au discours, aux constructions grammaticales, à la gesture, à la variation sociale et à la modélisation quantitative des analyses qualitatives en linguistique.

I am interested in a variety of topics in morphosyntax, semantics, and pragmatics. My approach is functional and often comparativist — comparing different languages (especially English, Russian, French, and German) or different varieties of English (from different areas of the English-speaking world) or different historical stages of English (from Early Modern English to Present-Day English). My current interests include verbal categories (aspectual systems, mood and modality, future reference) and the use of auxiliaries ; pronouns (gendered pronouns, 2nd-person systems) ; discourse markers (parentheticals, discourse clitics) ; and other markers or expressions of speaker attitude or assessment, including information structure.

Research
My research area is experimental phonetics. I am mainly interested in acoustic differences between female and male speech in American English and French speakers and in the way listeners can identify a speaker’s gender from his or her voice. So far, my findings support the idea that cross-gender acoustic differences are partly language-dependent and therefore, socially constructed. A next step will be to investigate bilingual speakers’ behaviour from this perspective.

I am also involved in a research project about the acoustic aspects of the syllable and syllabification preferences in in English L1 / French L2 and French L1 / English L2 bilingual speakers.

My main area of research is multimodal discourse analysis, within a Cognitive Linguistics theoretical framework. I particularly focus on sarcasm in interaction and the use of non-verbal elements, such as facial expressions, in the process of meaning construction. My projects include extending the interpretation of these facial expressions (called “gestural triggers” with the use of sarcasm) to other languages and to other communication modes (such as emoji use in different languages).

Research
As a scientist, I take a keen interest in understanding how meaning comes about and the bulk of my research is centered on the semantics-pragmatics interface. At a conceptual level, my theories of choice are Cognitive Construction Grammar and Relevance Theory, and I focus on issues that require spelling out the respective roles of grammar and context in the co-construction of meaning (e.g. coercion, lexically-regulated saturation, etc.). In the domain of English linguistics, I am especially interested in the expression of modality and the fine meaning effects (semantic or pragmatic) that the use of different modals brings about.

My hypothesis is that interlocutors use more sipmlified gestures to express stance in the staged context than in the spontaneous setting. The database consists in a corpus of distinct sets of co-speech gestures. The aim is to analyse the co-occurrences of stance-bearing lexical anchors with visual stance markers.

Thesis : Measuring Communicative Success of Educational Videos : A Quantitative Study of Linguistic Features Affecting Message Retention
Social media have relatively recently seen an emergence of a whole new category of videos, educational ones. These videos are varied and enjoy relative success. There is, however, a question of their communicative success : how high it is and, more importantly, what affects it ? Here, communicative success is operationalised as message retention. The goal of the research is thus to weed out of the high number of contributing factors the linguistic ones and analyse how they can affect message retention in educational videos.

Ma recherche s’inscrit dans l’étude sociolinguistique descriptive du parler urbain de la ville de Ceuta, afin de décrire l’état actuel de l’espagnol parlé dans cette enclave. Cette étude sera une continuité des autres travaux sociolinguistiques réalisés sur cette enclave surtout l’étude de Carmen Ayora (1996), en ayant comme objectif principal la présentation d’une description de ce parler tel qu’il est pratiqué aujourd’hui à Ceuta et de fournir de nouvelles données linguistiques à travers d’un corpus oral. Le choix d’étudier le parler de la ville n’était pas le fruit du hasard, car grâce aux conseils des directeurs de recherche et vu la situation de la ville que nous présentons dans la suite, nous avons décidé de faire une étude sociolinguistique sur l’espagnol de cette ville.

Project : Future constructions in Germanic and Romance languages
My PhD-project examines future constructions in English, Norwegian, French and Spanish, all of which all have several (at least two) competing future forms, some of which may also take modal readings. The study seeks to answer the question : can we find predictable patterns across languages and language families, i.e. are there some fundamental (possibly universal) ways of dividing the future temporal ground (the way we talk about the future) ? Or can their use and variation best be explained in terms of competing constructions that can be placed alongside an axis of grammaticalization ? The possible applications for the project are mainly theoretical (within Cognitive and Construction Grammar), but could also show to have implications in didactics (the acquisition of these constructions for L2 learners) and computational linguistics (resolving ambiguities between tense, aspect and modality).

Project : The Polish instrumental in constructional alternations

My research is situated within the domain of usage-based corpus semantics, applied to the study of grammatical alternations and case. My PhD project focuses specifically on the Polish instrumental case, which, aside from its eponymous function, displays a broad array of vastly different uses. In several situations, the synthetic forms with the instrumental marking can be substituted by other structures, yielding near-synonymous effects. The project sets out to analyse these situations, capturing the variables underlying constructional choices made by the speakers, and, thereby, providing a usage-based description of the Polish instrumental.

Project : Straight face on the stand up comedian. Prosody and gesture in ironic discourse

This project explores how sarcasm is performed and how it is used in stand-up comedy in order to deliver humorous intentions by using gestural triggers. Sarcasm has been defined as a critical message which targets “someone or something specifically, be they present or not” (Tabacaru 2017). Our project consists of comparing the occurrences of sarcastic cues with the facial expressions and the prosodic features of the speaker since these non-verbal cues serve as ‘helpers’ (Tabacaru 2014) that guide the hearers to the interpretation of the humorous message. The data is mainly drawn from Ricky Gervais’ stand-up comedy show “Humanity” (live and informal speech) in order to prove the use of certain gestural triggers to mark (from the part of the speaker) and detect (from the part of the hearer) the occurrences of sarcasm such as raised eyebrows and other facial expressions.

Syntax, Functional Linguistics

Projet : Lexical licensing of a complex situation in a simple English sentence structure
Une question fondamentale dans la linguistique contemporaine est celle de compositionnalité (lexical licencing). Cette problématique est à l’origine des grands débats grammaticaux de 20ème siècle et la question reste entièrement ouverte jusqu’à nos jours. Pourquoi est-il grammatical de combiner un lexème avec une construction, mais un autre lexème comparable ne produit pas une combinaison grammaticale (felicitous). Quelles sont les contraintes sur les combinaisons lexico-syntaxiques ? Est-il possible de produire une grammaire adéquate au plan descriptif, mais aussi adéquate au plan explicatif, qui rendent compte de telles contraintes. L’objet de cette étude est limité aux constructions employées dans la consommation de l’alimentation.

Linguistique, Acquisition des langues Vocales et langues des Signes (LAVS)

Présentation

Master fortement adossé à la recherche qui se déroule au sein des laboratoires Structures Formelles du Langage (UMR 7023), Linguistique Empirique : Cognition, Société et Langage (RU TransCrit 1569) et Etudes Romanes (EA LER 4385) proposent une formation complète et diversifiée en Sciences du Langage abordant divers sous-domaines de la discipline sous des angles complémentaires. Ainsi, les étudiants inscrits dans ce parcours peuvent individualiser leur projet de master en articulant les théories linguistiques à la description des langues y compris les langues de signes, à l’étude de l’acquisition des langues et/ou du langage ainsi qu’à l’étude des processus didactiques.

La pédagogie adoptée est celle issue du courant de « pédagogie du projet » où les étudiants seront amenés à s’approprier des outils linguistiques, théoriques et méthodologiques, à travers un travail de linguiste de terrain. Les cours théoriques seront donc en relation directe avec les projets sur lesquels l’étudiant travaillera en stage sous l’égide d’un tuteur de stage. Chaque projet est encadré par un directeur de recherche qui vous guide et vous aide dans son développement et sa mise en œuvre. Vous pouvez trouver une liste de directeurs de recherche ici.

Ainsi, un stage obligatoire dans un laboratoire de recherche ou dans un établissement d’enseignement doit être choisi par l’étudiant en fonction du projet de recherche, ce qui lui permettra de connaître la réalité du monde du travail dans la recherche et dans la formation.Les laboratoires Structures Formelles du Langage (UMR 7023), Linguistique Empirique : Cognition, Société et Langage (RU TransCrit 1569) et Etudes romanes (EA LER 4385) offrent aux étudiants qui choisissent le stage en laboratoire des possibilités intéressantes d’intégrer des projets de recherche qui s’y déroulent. Vous pouvez trouver une liste de stages actuellement offerts par le laboratoire Linguistique Empirique : Cognition, Société et Langage (RU TransCrit 1569) ici.
