New PDF release: Phonétique historique du français et notions de phonétique

By J.-M. Pierret

ISBN-10: 9068316087

ISBN-13: 9789068316087

Nouvelle version, entierement revue, d'un manuel destine aux etudiants et aux lecteurs cultives desireux de s'initier a l. a. phonetique et a l'histoire de l. a. prononciation du francais, cet ouvrage contient deux grandes events: une initiation a los angeles phonetique generale et un landscape de l. a. phonetique historique du francais. Les notions de phonetique generale se basent surtout sur l'observation du francais contemporain. Elles ont pour yet de faire prendre sense of right and wrong au lecteur francophone, habitue a accorder une awareness toute particuliere a los angeles forme ecrite des messages, que toute langue est d'abord un phenomene oral. Un bref apercu de phonetique acoustique est suivi d'une longue description des mecanismes articulatoires mis en oeuvre pour l. a. construction des sons qui composent les langues et des changes que subissent ces sons lorsqu'ils sont inseres dans l. a. chaine parlee. Si l. a. forme ecrite des messages des locuteurs francophones est presque toujours specific, il en va tout autrement de leur forme orale et les memes enonces se trouvent realises dans des prononciations bien differentes dans les diverses areas de l. a. francophonie. Des lors se pose un probleme de norme: quelle prononciation recommander ou admettre? C'est a l. a. phonetique normative (ou orthoepie) qu'il revient de repondre a cette query et de proposer des conseils portant sur des issues plus particuliers, comme l. a. prononciation des nnoms propres, los angeles liaison ou l'elision du e muet. L'expose de cette partie normative est specialement attentive aux principales caracteristiques du francais de Wallonie et de Bruxelles. Les graphies du francais, souvent citadel complexes, gardent le temoignage de prononciations anciennes et montrent que les sons evoluent. Ainsi les voyelles contenues dans beau, fleur, major, soeur ... etaient autrefois des sons complexes; los angeles liaison en t que l'on fait apres l'adjectif grand rapelle q'au moyen age, l. a. consonne finale cet adjectif etait une sourde (grant). los angeles phonetique historique (une des premieres disciplines elaborees par los angeles linguistique scientifique) a etabli que ces evolutions ne se sont pas faites de maniere aleatoire. l. a. derniere partie du manuel decrit ces evolutions, du latin au francais, et montre remark s'est constitue le phonetisme du francais contemporain. Elle insiste particulierement sur les qualities qui distinguent le francais des autres langues romanes et ca et los angeles, elle releve les phenomenes qui sont responsables de l. a. differentiation des dialectes de l. a. Wallonie. L'ouvrage est enrichi de nombreuses illustrations qui rendent les exposes plus concrets et il se termine par trois index: un index analytique contenant tous les termes suggestions utilises, un index des etynoms et un index des mots francais cites dans l. a. partie historique.
