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.

Abstract: Dans cet article, nous explorons le fonctionnement discursif des titres en nous appuyant sur l'hypothèse qu'ils contribuent à la construction d'un modèle interprétatif du discours. Notre objectif est de montrer que les relations que les titres entretiennent avec le texte qu'ils chapeautent ne se laissent pas décrire avec les mêmes outils théoriques ni avec les mêmes méthodes selon le genre des textes. Parce qu'ils sont uniques, les titres d'articles de presse devraient pouvoir être décrits au travers de relations de cohérence. Parce qu'ils sont multiples, en revanche, les titres qui structurent les textes longs ne peuvent pas être abordés ainsi. La description de leur fonctionnement exige une méthode de linguistique de corpus fondée sur l'annotation systématique d'indices susceptibles de faire émerger des types fonctionnels distincts.
