    This article aims to analyze through linguistic tools the social dimension of representations. The dynamics of social representations are viewed as the result of two processes: preconstruction and co-construction. More precisely, the notions of «social availability» and «reference-0» are developed and applied in a conversational analysis perspective. This study allows for a constrastive approach to the study of social representations within several sociopolitical contexts, notably the Aosta Valley (Italy) and the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
