Book Information


Title: L'article «Argot» au fil des dictionnaires depuis le XVIIe siècle
Written By: Denis Delaplace

De 1629 à nos jours, les dictionnaires ont consacré au mot argot des articles tributaires de représentations reprises sans réexamen, souvent contradictoires entre elles, voire contredites par les faits. L'auteur en retrace les étapes et propose des pistes pour réétudier ce qui se joue sous la polysémie du terme. From 1629, and still today, the word argot is explained in dictionaries through a series of definitions which have been repeated over and over again without re-examination. These definitions often contradict each other, and moreover, are often contradicted by fact. The author of this work retraces the steps and suggests certain avenues by which the polysemy of the term can be studied anew.
