Contribution à l'étude des pauses silencieuses et des phénomènes dits "d'hésitation" en français oral spontané. Etude sur un corpus de récits en classe de français.

Abstract : This study investigates so-called "hesitation" phenomena in non-read oral French, which we prefer to call "formulation effort markers" [une autre traduction possible, que je trouve plus élégante mais qui traduit peut-être moins bien ton idée serait "formulation attempt markers"], which is to say the "euh", significant final lengthening, repetition, and immediate auto-correction. Particular importance is accorded to the combinations between these markers and with silent pauses.
Our results show that a silent pause following an "euh" or a lengthening due to an effort at [attempt at] formulation, as well as silent pauses inserted between two terms of a repetition, all form a distinct group, which we have named "non structuring pauses" because they are part of the preceding marker and do not contribute to the hierarchy and demarcation of the constituents.
Each marker, studied separately, is characterized by its own length and that of the subsequent pause, by its combination with other markers and its occurrence within mixed accumulated marker sites, by its lexical contexts and (intono-)syntactic distribution. The most common as well as the least frequent configurations are catalogued. This analysis is founded upon (rare) accomplished studies of these markers in French. It attempts to verify, nuance and enrich certain hypotheses which have already been formulated, and is based on 70 minutes of recorded non-read narratives during French class.
Through perception tests and the analysis of "hesitation" markers by playwrights and actors, this study also contributes to a better understanding of how ordinary readers represent these phenomena along with their perceptibility.
