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.

It demonstrates that blind interviewees are expert users when they explore with their hands and describe four little...

Partager et revendiquer le sens des études en prison : expression de l'expertise d'étudiants-détenus

Alidieres-Dumonceaud, Lucie ; Bonu, Bruno

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2019, vol. 70, p. 61-74

This article explores the way the prisoners who pursue higher studies in prison formulate various expertise about postsecondary studies during face-to-face or mediated encounters with academic teachers/researchers. The findings further highlight the students-inmates' institutional knowledge and the practical reasoning about the "sense of studies". The approach adopted in this article is based on...

The Social Construction of Academic Expertise in Multilingual School Contexts: Policy Options and Instructional Choices

Cummins, Jim

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2019, vol. 70, p. 43-59

Cet article soutient que l'expertise – entendue comme un niveau élevé de compétence dans un domaine particulier – et son contraire, l'incompétence, ne sont pas simplement des caractéristiques statiques appartenant en propre à l'individu, mais sont construites socialement et renvoient à des relations de pouvoir au sein des relations sociales. Dans les classes multilingues, cette...

"Allophone" : trajectoire d'une catégorie aux prises avec la notion d'expertise

Auger, Nathalie

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2019, vol. 70, p. 23-41

The objective of this text is to question the category "allophone", which refers since 2012, in the circulars of the Ministery of National Education in France, to the children newly arrived in France. This category reveals the tensions, continuities and breaks that exist between different discursive worlds: that of research, that of the institution (teachers' discourses and practices) and that of...

Discours d'experts : les modes d'intervention des sciences du langage dans le monde social

Verdier, Maud

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2019, vol. 70, p. 5-21

This article focuses on linguistic researchers working on a sensitive field, and the constitution of an expert discourse. This article shows that a translation process is always necessary when scientific discourse is transformed into expert discourse, due to a number of research assumptions. The general purpose of the paper is to develop a better understanding of the transformation processes of...

"Du vin pour choper": identité masculine, blague (hétéro)sexuelles et affiliation lors d'une première rencontre entre hommes

Piccoli, Vanessa ; Chernyshova, Elizaveta

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2018, vol. 69, p. 99-123

In this paper, we present a study of the interactional mechanisms involved in the construction of a peer group in the context of a first professional encounter at an international wine fair. In this single case study, we examine a particular interaction between French and Italian winegrowers, while focusing on the ways in which a shared masculine heterosexual identity emerges throughout...

Les modalités de représentation du discours dans Diderot et d’Alembert en comparaison avec deux encyclopédies du 21ème siècle: Universalis et Wikipédia

Ricci, Claudia ; Rossari, Corinne ; Dolamic, Ljiljana

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2018, vol. 69, p. 75-98

This paper aims at exploring some of the possible ways in which represented discourse (defined as the representation of a content whose source can either be the speaker itself or a third party) manifests itself in Diderot and D'Alembert's Encyclopédie in comparison with two different encyclopedic works from the 21st century. To do so, we take into account two possible variation...

Sur quelques emplois du pronom je dans l’Encyclopédie de Diderot et d’Alembert

Brot, Muriel

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2018, vol. 69, p. 61-73

Used by several encyclopedists, the pronoun je appears in many articles of Diderot's and d'Alembert's Encyclopédie which – owing to the scholarly ambition of their research as well as to the collective nature of the undertaking – qualify as scientific discourse, a genre which cannot normally use this pronoun without breaching its own rules, thus giving rise to criticism over genre confusion....
