Le langage du Conseil de Sécurité de l'ONU : analyse de discours des résolutions en français et en anglais depuis 1946

Abstract : This thesis tries to first show how close text analysis methods in International Law and in Language Sciences are, and how well they complement each other, particularly in the field of Translation studies, to produce a discourse analysis of the UN Security Council resolutions from 1946 to 2015 included, that is relevant in both fields, and as such, truly interdisciplinary. Such corpus analysis using textometric tools onto the text itself as well as on various contextual data allows us to produce actionable results in both scientific fields, which is a stated goal of Digital Humanities.We show one such result by establishing the ordinary meaning of the English version of Resolution 242 (1967) by figuring out for our corpus the translation frequency into French of the English plural zero determiner in order to determine its ordinary meaning. By doing so, we help resolving a long-standing issue of interpretation in International Law, as well as produce a model of the usage of this determiner in English. Furthermore, we show how translation characteristics can reveal semantic extension of certain words and how a legal analysis of the UN Security Council resolutions can be approximated with an algorithm based on purely linguistic features.
