Revue Tranel

Revue Tranel
The TRANEL collection (TRAvaux NEuchâtelois de Linguistique), journal of the Institute of Linguistics and Communication of the University of Neuchatel, established in 1980, is published twice a year. The volumes are published on paper, but the entire collection is also available free of charge on RERO doc. Its directions are various : semantics, pragmatics, syntax, speech therapy, sociolinguistics, conversational analysis, bilingualism, terminology, diachronic change, variation, language skills, etc. The journal provides an overview of research at the Institute of Linguistics and Communication, it also provides an opportunity for researchers from other backgrounds to offer original themes and begin editing an issue.
It works on the principle of peer review, but reserves itself the right to refuse publication of an article, even after revision, that would be considered of insufficient scientific quality by experts.

Interactions familiales d'un enfant jumeau avec retard de langage oral : identification de situations facilitatrices pour l'enfant

Prevost Audrey ; Caët, Stéphanie

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 66, p. 107-124

The prevalence of speech and/or language delay in twins is higher than in singletons. Because of the specificity of the triadic situation in which twins acquire language, we wanted to analyze family interactions in order to identify situations that could facilitate the child's speech and be worked on in the context of a parental guidance. Video recordings were made at the home of one family of...

Interactions parent-enfant et développement langagier d'enfants négligés âgés de 3,5 ans

Sylvestre, Audette ; Di Sante, Mélissa ; Bouchard, Caroline

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 66, p. 89-106

Child neglect is a parent's failure to respond to his child's fundamental needs. In this context, language development is particularly vulnerable as it depends on frequent and sensitive parent-child interactions. After having established the prevalence of language delays among neglected children, this study aims to compare dimensions of parent-child interactions in neglectful and non-neglectful...

Observer et évaluer la qualité des interactions enseignant.e/enfants à l'école maternelle en Belgique pour soutenir le développement langagier des enfants de 4 ans : une étude exploratoire

Leroy, Sandrine ; Bergeron-Morin, Lisandre ; Desmottes, Lise ; Bouchard, Caroline ; Maillart, Christelle

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 66, p. 69-87

Early childhood education is a privileged context for children to develop their language and communication abilities (Dickinson, 2011). More specifically, it is demonstrated that the quality of the interactions between teachers and children plays a protective role on language and communication development for more vulnerable children (Burchinal et al. 2010; Simard et al. 2013). The current study...

Types syntaxiques des énoncés de dyades parent-enfant : influence du type d'activité et des séquences discursives

Heurdier, Julien

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 66, p. 45-68

Few studies have examined the effects of activities and discursive sequences (i.e. when two speakers interact together, different forms of discourse can be produced in dialogue; these forms can follow one another or be interwoven, thus constituting discursive sequences) during which parent-child dyads interact on the child's syntactic development. This paper aims to analyze the effect of the...

Prendre en compte l'interaction : de la recherche descriptive aux études d'efficacité

Rezzonico, Stefano ; Mcintyre, Julie

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 66, p. 29-44

Evidence-based practices are at the centre of clinical and political discourse about health care. Interaction between researchers and clinical professionals is crucial in order to define and apply the best practices interventions. This contribution explores the role of the systematic observation of interactions in the development of Speech-Language Pathology interventions. In particular, the...

Dialogue et interaction au cœur de la réflexion sur l'acquisition du langage

Salazar Orvig, Anne

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 66, p. 5-27

Interactionist (Vygostki, de Weck) and dialogic (François) approaches of language acquisition assume not only that dialogue and/or interaction play a determinant role in language acquisition, but also that forms and structures cannot be understood without referring to discursive practices. Whereas communicative experience is a central concept in most non nativist approaches, for the needs of...

Une "tradition de l'innovation" ? Réflexion à partir du corrélat innovation/créativité en DDL

Castellotti, Véronique ; Debono, Marc ; Huver, Emmanuelle

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 65, p. 113-130

Can we say that innovation has become a "tradition” in Language Didactology and Didactics? Then what hides behind this race for innovation, assuming a constant improvement? We develop here a possible interpretation of this phenomenon through the study of correlated innovation and creativity, starting from its historical and epistemological foundations, which reveals a prevailing "technical”...

De la captatio à la partitio : rhétorique de l'introduction de l'article de recherche

Herman, Thierry

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 65, p. 89-111

The introductions of research articles can often been described within the well-known frame of the "Creating a Research Space" (CARS) model of John Swales. Yet, this contribution wants to discuss this model in parallel with the ancient rhetoric model of dispositio. It is argued that the CARS model does not envision a captatio benevolentiae in research articles, which are in fact...

Quels critères pour déterminer la "meilleure" explication scientifique ?

Wagemans, Jean H. M.

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 65, p. 79-88

In justifying their choice of the 'best' scientific explanation from a number of candidate explanations, scientists may employ specific theoretical virtues and other criteria for good scientific theories. This paper is aimed at providing an inventory of such criteria and at analyzing how they function argumentatively by indicating their systematic place within the pattern of argumentation based...
