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.

Intertextualité et interdiscours : filiations et contextualisation de concepts hétérogènes

Adam, Jean-Michel

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2006, vol. 44, p. 3-26

The heterogeneous origin of concepts like "interdiscourse" and "intertext" – the former stemming from discourse analysis and the latter from poetics and literary semiotics – blurs their understanding. The present clarification, in the shape of a note or bibliographical memo, serves to remind us that these two concepts have a history. This article examines how these concepts circulate, and it...

La communication expressive dans les forums de discussion : émotions et attitude ironique chez l'adolescent

Aguert, Marc ; Marcoccia, Michel ; Atifi, Hassan ; Gauduchau, Nadia ; Laval, Virginie

In: Revue Tranel, 2012, vol. 57, p. 63-82

This study investigates how adolescents communicate their feelings and attitudes on an Internet forum. Our guiding question is: Is this "expressive communication" specific compared with face-to-face interaction? According to the social information processing theory (Walther, 1996, 2007), it should: Internet forums have significant limitations to express feelings and attitudes due to the lack of...

Intonation, contexte et interaction Sur quels indices les enfants comprennent-ils l'intention du locuteur ?

Aguert, Marc ; Laval, Virginie ; Bernicot, Josie

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2008, vol. 49, p. 119-133

This study investigates the contribution of intonation and context in the understanding of utterances presented in a situational context. In order to find out whether intonation is the sole cue, we separated the intonation from the content of utterances (meaningless syllables). Five- to nine-year old children and a group of adults performed a computerized story-completion task, using...

La gheada: un phénomène de variation phonétique, géolinguistique et socioculturelle du galicien

Alen Garabato, M. Carmen

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2001, vol. 34-35, p. 219-232

«Gheada», a phonetical feature characteristic of certain areas of Galicia, unknown in Castilian and Portuguese, consists of the pronunciation of /g/ ([g], [G]) as [h]. This phonetic innovation, very widespread in western Galicia, has been traditionally stigmatised as a sign of rusticity and lack of culture, thus turning this phenomenon into a sociolinguistic marker. Absent from both formal...

Les grandes lignes de partage structurelles de la grammaire française se retrouvent-elles dans la description du portugais et de l’espagnol?

Almeida, Maria-Elisete

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2002, vol. 37, p. 75-91

It is our purpose in the current paper to examine, within a French-Iberian contrastive perspective, the rendibility of the main dichotomies structuring the French-speaking grammatical universe. We shall start by dealing with the opposition «complément» / «attribut» originally stemming in the eighteenth century with the Encyclopaedic grammarians thus yielding, in the nineteenth...

Homogénéité et hétérogénéité de la langue latine selon Varron et Aulu-Gelle: aspects historique, social et fonctionnel

Amacker, René

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2001, vol. 34-35, p. 369-382

Of the many Latin texts in which we find views on language — and in particular on linguistic change and variation — Varro’s De Lingua Latina and Gellius’Noctes Atticae provide good examples of the perspectives, respectively, of the Stoic philosopher and of the ‘antiquarian’ philologist. Stoics consider that language was created as perfect as possible, almost completely...
