Le Dit et le Non-Dit

Langage(s) et traduction

Sonia Berbinski

De par leur force de changer les facettes, de se métamorphoser en fonction des particularités linguistiques, de la situation de communication, des intentions des instances interlocutives, du domaine de représentation, les notions d’implicite, de présupposition et de sous-entendu (bref du Dit et du Non-dit) se retrouvent aux fondements de toute architecture discursive. Les recherches de ce volume se proposent de définir ou redéfinir ces notions, de découvrir les mécanismes de production des stratégies discursives basées sur l’implicite, ainsi que les modalités d’expression du vouloir dire et du dire. Elles se revendiquent de la sémantique, de la pragmatique et de la grammaire diachronique et synchronique. La traductologie et les discours de spécialité bouclent la structure du livre.

Amélie Nothomb – Mercure ou le jeu spéculaire

Extract



AMELIE NOTHOMB – MERCURY OR THE MIRROR GAMES. The novel of Amelie Nothomb illustrates, in an exemplary way, the relation -which could be called mirror-like – between the Author and the Model Reader. Quite often, the Reader is enticed into the language strategies of the Author who is playing with her good faith by proposing a mirror of a reality which the first – by virtue of a pact of cooperation – is ready to accept without doubting whether this reality is fake or illusionary. Or, the image reflected by a mirror is a reversed image; there are also deformable mirrors.     Given the situation my intention is to propose an analysis of Amelie Nothomb’s novel in the form of a double game metaphor, mirror-like, identifiable in nature: (i) at the level of the fable ( strategies of characters fretting within the limits of the textual world), and (ii) at the level of the linguistic mechanisms activated in the very construction of this world (Relation Author – Reader).

Keywords: agent, action, strategy, strategic action
