Pratiques et représentations des langues chantées dans les musiques populaires en France : une approche par trois enquêtes autour du français, de l’anglais et de l’occitan

Abstract : Language practices in popular music are generally understood to be a strategicchoice related to globalizing forces. If musical activities do indeed depend on questions ofrecognition and remuneration, we can therefore propose a more complex approach tomusicians’ and listeners’ attitudes towards language, and to consider how different languagescoexist within the French context of popular music. To do so, we must consider languages asmimetic practices that are constantly relocated, rather than fixed entities. Integrated inmusical works, they follow processes of transnational circulation and appropriation, but alsorelate to original forms of identification, that go beyond the sole linguistic field. As such, thepractice of a language is often linked, in more or less conflicting ways, to broader senses ofbelonging, such as the nation. This is specifically the case in France, where we locate ourinvestigation. We firstly study how, historically, the French State has promoted its nationalidiom within the field of music. We then propose a socio-historical review of the mainmusical trends that have renewed the configuration of languages in France over the past fiftyyears. We finally analyze three case studies that enable us to observe, within popular music,the specific practices and representations of French, English and Occitan.
