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.

Le tact des mots : écrire et discuter l'histoire d'un sujet sensible

Ferry, Victor

In: Revue Tranel, 2017, vol. 65, p. 7-18

Does writing history about a sensitive issue require tactfulness? This question brings us at the core of a distinction between rhetoric and academic writing. As an expert in discursive efficiency, a rhetorician will tackle this sensitive issue as a technical problem. Taking into account that this issue may inflame passions, he or she will find strategies to convey his or her message in relatively...

Le paysage linguistique : reflet d'une réalité bilingue à Moncton, Nouveau-Brunswick, Canada

Boschung, Susanne

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2016, vol. 64, p. 161-180

The linguistic landscape of Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, seems particularly interesting because Moncton is situated at the edge of the Acadian French-speaking territory. It therefore represents a mixed region where French- and English-speaking inhabitants share space. Near Moncton lies Dieppe, a community with 74% of French-speaking inhabitants, but also Riverview, where 80% of the population...

Attitudes des francophones du Nouveau-Brunswick à l'égard du Chiac

Voisin, Camille
