Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Ecritures du moi et ideologies chez les romancieres francophones
Subtitle: Claire Etcherelli, Gabrielle Roy,Were Were Liking et Delphine Zanga Tsogo
Written By: Tang Alice Delphine
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Language and Literature 02

Les écritures du moi sont en général des "autobiographies d'auteurs qui
laissent apparaître, soit sur la couverture soit dans le texte, des marques
distinctives qui les définissent comme étant des biographies. Par exemple,
Gabrielle ROY a écrit certains textes ayant la mention "autobiographie".
Mais d'autres comme son roman CES ENFANTS DE MA VIE qui est même présenté
comme un recueil de nouvelles ne portent pas cette mention. Notre étude
montre que certains romans de fiction de ces quatre romancières sont des
textes qui parlent de la vie et de l'expérience vécues par leurs auteurs.

L'étude en question combine les méthodes socio-historiques aux méthodes
textuelles pour découvrir la richesse de l'art à travers un matériau qui
colle à la réalité, à l'histoire. Enfin, comme les récits de reportage et
les récits autobiographiques sont considérés comme de simples témoignages
d'une vie, ici l'écrivain va au délà d'un témoignage: il exprime une vision
du monde, une idéologie. A travers leurs expériences personnelles ces
romancières mènent des combats humanistes avec diverses orientations.
Ceux-ci ne sont pas nécessairement féministes. Il s'agit de promouvoir une
communication inter-humaine.
