La dynamique linguistique des relations spatiales en créole réunionnais et sa contribution à la question de l'illettrisme

Abstract : Our thesis, entitled Linguistic dynamic of spatial relationships in Reunion Creole and its contribution to the illiteracy issue, fits in descriptive linguistic questioning the problematic of spatiality with tools and methods of functional linguistic in dynamic synchrony for Reunion Creole (Martinet : 1989, Staudacher-Valliamée : 1999). Surveys conducted in the field of Reunion Creole speakers gather a corpus of 24 idiolects in a representative sampling including several age groups, geographical locations and difficulty to practice French (official language of the department). Syntactic and prosodic analysis of spatial relationships relies on a sampling of 607 predicative phrases. This thesis establishes the link between spatial relationships, valence program (Tesnière : 1965), word order in predicative structures. The functionalist model is completed by Pottier's general semantic parameters (1992). This thesis brings a new perspective with the identification of the Reunion Creole spatial system, which allows its classification among the framework of verbal and satellite languages (Talmy : 2008). By the place of names, spatial system is rooted in Creole collective memory and Reunion Creole speaker insular History. Oral creole tradition involves specific situations of illiteracy. Our informants demonstrate their analphabetism, illiteracy and their learning difficulties. The didactic and educational fallout from our research contribute to the remediation and tooling for the learning of French spatial system descriptive linguistic.
