Le silence, entre oubli et choix, autant de clefs dans l'évolution des langues (Estelle Variot - MCF [MCF HDR en octobre 2017])

Abstract : Silence is a frame that has a link with thought and the origin of language which illustrates a precise state of the language. The original source of silence and its corollary represented, with some shades, by word or speech, refer to the way in which human hierarchical society works while it has established, in time, all sorts of rules in order to organize its progression and its general evolution. Obviously, however, language fragmentation has created some characteristics that are more or less convergent or divergent, in languages that get in touch nowadays and, particularly, in Romance languages. Numerous discussions have illustrated language and the parts of speech which have derived from it in time ; those remain completely actual, due to the proper existence of some rules and of exceptions which mark out our linguistic universes. Whether it is motivated by the author’s will or it is the result of an unconsidered choice, it has an impact on our languages and on their evolutions ; and linguists have always had to take it into consideration, in order to embellish and to maintain harmony. In such a context that goes throughout centuries, taking some extracts, in French or in Romanian, will permit us to display this phenomenon which is so enriching and important for keeping our linguistics particularities.
