La syllabe dans l'écriture inventée en français

Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to study the role of syllable at early learning of writing for kindergarten pupils by the means of an invented spelling task. First of all, in fields of activities such as reading, writing and oral examination, it is a matter of examining the didactic practices of kindergarten teachers thanks to a questionnaire carrying the most employed units used in the discovery of languages (letter/sound, syllable and word). The results show that the most employed unit in reading and writing activities is the word, whereas the unit of the oral examination is the syllable. On the basis of this report, we sought to know the impact of an oral work based on the syllable, upon pupils’ written productions. All obtained data is in favor of the assumption according to which, the pupils take into account elements of the oral examination (letter, sound, and syllable) to code oral statements in their writings. Moreover, results show the use of six treatments, which underlie the early learning of writing, and show that it is not a single process, and that many parameters can lead the pupil to treat an oral statement in various ways. Eventually, we conducted a study of experimental didactic work based on the oral syllable, aiming to observe the effects of a regular training for oral syllable upon the written productions of the pupils. The results do not make it possible to validate the assumption according to which, the syllable would be the pivot unit of the entrance in writing at kindergarten, but nevertheless show certain effects of the intervention.
