Meeting Description:

Workshop / Journée d’études

Multimodality and Constructions / Multimodalité et Constructions

Friday March 11, 2016 - Vendredi 11 mars 2016
Salle des Actes – École Normale Supérieure – 45 rue d’Ulm, Paris

When we talk, we don’t rely solely on speech but also on variations of the
voice and on gestures. The verbal, vocal and kinesic modalities are integrated
simultaneously and sequentially in the intersubjective and dynamic
construction of meaning during spoken interaction. Accounting for such
phenomena calls for a multimodal approach of spoken language.

While some kinesic forms are used to represent objects and actions, others
seem to qualify as form-function pairings that are stable across speakers and
contexts of use, and hence seem to belong more in the grammar of a language
than in its lexicon. This workshop aims to study in greater details such
form-function pairings, or constructions, as part of a multimodal approach of
spoken languages. Can some gesture forms be analysed as constructions, as
defined by Construction Grammars in Cognitive Linguistics? If so, does the
construction of meaning in the course of interaction rely on the integration
of constructions across modalities? Are constructions monomodal only or can
constructions be inherently multimodal, i.e. made of a function paired with a
complex form that extends across modalities?

The speakers in this workshop will provide insights on these issues, by
focusing on various subjects in the study of spoken languages: L1 and L2
acquisition, aspect, syntax, pragmatics and discourse markers. Presentations
will be made in English and French.
