L'ORDRE ET LE D�SORDRE
Le politique en anthropologie

Victor Pereira Da Rosa & Jean Lapointe
University of Ottawa

	L'objectif central de cet ouvrage est de fournir aux �tudiants
et �tudiantes en anthropologie politique un outil p�dagogique qui, �
notre avis, vient combler un vide dans l'enseignement sup�rieur en
langue fran�aise. Ce volume est l'aboutissement des exp�riences
didactiques des auteurs qui, depuis longtemps, ont �t� responsables
des cours et des s�minaires dans ce domaine � l'Universit�
d'Ottawa. Ce travail de synth�se incorpore des id�es et des r�actions
de cohortes �tudiantes qui ont �lu l'�tude du politique comme part de
leur formation.

	L'anthropologie politique prend de plus en plus d'ampleur
aussi bien dans le champ des �tudes ethnologiques que dans celui des
sciences politiques. Les auteurs tentent d'en cerner les notions
fondamentales de pouvoir, gouvernement et leadership dans une
perspective comparative. Cette analyse tient compte des diff�rentes
formes d'organisation sociale qui ont cours dans l'univers
ethnographique (bandes, tribus, chefferies et �tats). Une discussions
des principales orientations th�oriques qui ont marque le
d�veloppement de l'anthropologie politique est pr�sent�e
succinctement. Dans les derni�res sections, on �tudie des cas
particuliers tels que la mondialisation et la souverainet� des nations
am�rindiennes.

Message 2: 2nd Lang Acquisition -N. Chaimanee, Universal Communicative Strategies

UNIVERSAL COMMUNICATIVE STRATEGIES IN ACQUISITION OF SECOND LANGUAGE
PHONOLOGY

Nittaya Chaimanee, University of Freiburg

	This study investigates the significance of filled and unfilled pause
phenomena as a universal strategy in language acquisition to achieve
potential in communication across languages. Thai, the language of
Thailand is used as a second language by speakers of different first
languages as well as a first language in a natural setting, in Thai
environment. 
	The study, by way of contrastive analysis between speech samples of
native and non-native speakers, provides statistical results on the
distribution of pauses, with discussion of significant features which
affect pauses and significance of pauses in conversations in Thai. As a
result of the empirical testing of Thai spontaneous speech data, more
information on Thai phonology has been revealed. Two corresponding types
of pauses, filled pauses/pause fillers and unfilled/silent pauses are
found in conversational Thai spontaneous speech. Filled pauses are
categorized into two kinds, "common" filled pauses and "typically Thai"
filled pauses. They are specifically used in isolation at conversational
turns and in conversational overlappings. Unfilled pauses manifest
themselves as relatively different durations of silence. Both types of
pauses occur within conversational turns, before words initially
composed of complex linguistic components. These components mostly
operate under modification of certain prosodies, and are specifically
characteristic of the target language. They motivate phonotactic
constraints due to articulatory difficulties of speech processing which
may relate to cognitive factors, especially control and awareness.
Filled pauses and unfilled pauses are, as highlighted in this study,
normal hesitation phenomena in spontaneous speech. They are phenomena of
significance in communication as common speech strategies which enhance
for potential proficiency of language acquisition, especially of a
second language.
