Meeting Description:

The Language of Communication Mediated by Information and Communication Technology/La Langue de la Communication Médiatisée par les Technologies De L'information et de la Communication (CMT)

Communication mediated by information and communication technology (CMT) can be defined as communication between human beings instrumentalized by means of digital networks ; although so far CMT has taken place mainly through the channel of writing, this definition includes a large number of functions, and the variety of forms that this means of communication can take only parallels the diversity of its conditions of production and reception.

Relatively little research has been carried out in France in the area of CMT. If one excludes research conducted in the area of man-machine communication, the main focus in this country has been on the social and cultural aspects of CMT and its use in learning contexts. These are important areas, but research should also consider more language-related aspects (while also taking into account their social and cultural contexts). If we want to gain a better understanding of the pragmatics of natural languages, and French among them, we need to understand, on the one hand, the nature, the roles and the functions of the various types of CMT, and on the other hand the forms of language and of textuality of each type of CMT.

The conference will be structured around four main themes:

Language: vocabulary, syntax, speech and writing. What is the degree of convergence of the conventions of speech and writing in CMT? What is the influence of the different types of CMT on the language used?

Discourse: typology, structure, forms for specific occupational and non occupational purposes. What text forms and what discourses are used and developed in these new practices?

Behaviors: what are the roles of interactivity, of synchronicity, of the association of different medias? What is the influence of the language of CMT on everyday language?

Norms: what new norms emerge from usage?

Presentations can focus on either of the following areas:

the language of institutional, commercial, advertising sites …
the communication between individuals: e-mail, forums, chat, blogs, SMS, ...
