Book Information


Title: Paroles mélodisées
Subtitle: Récits épiques et lamentations chez les Yézidis d'Arménie
Written By: Estelle Amy de la Bretèque

Dans les communautés kurdophones d'Arménie, le deuil, l'exil et l'héroïsme sont évoqués par un régime particulier d'énonciation. Mêlant ethnographie, analyse acoustique et linguistique, l'auteur montre que cet usage de la voix construit un idéal de vie reliant les vivants aux absents et aux défunts. In the Kurdish-speaking communities of Armenia, mourning, exile, and heroism are expressed through a specific system of utterances. Blending ethnography, acoustic analysis, and linguistics, the author shows that this use of the voice constructs a form of ideal life linking the living to the absent and deceased.
