Discours évangéliques interprétés : analyse de l'organisation interactionnelle

Abstract : Interpreted Evangelical Discourses: Analysis of the Interactional Organization In a multilingual evangelical Christian setting, the intervention of a mediator (i.e. an interpreter) becomes necessary in order to guarantee the understanding of the moment of preaching, among other activities (e.g. prayers, announcements, etc.). Nowadays, studies on religious interpreted speeches from a conversational perspective are marginal. This research focuses on the analysis of consecutive interpreting sequences in speeches made in two evangelical churches, one in France, the other in Venezuela. It is based on an observation methodology supported by audiovisual recordings and their transcriptions. From these data gathered in situ, this study highlights, thanks to the Conversation Analysis, the internal organization of the exchanges, and mainly the course of the « turn taking system » in its details. In order to do this, we take into consideration, on one hand, the interactional aspects of the work of the interpreters allowing the intelligibility of the exchanges (i.e. competencies), and on the other hand, the characteristic elements of the evangelical context (i.e. shared cognitive objects). In the same way, this study points out the transversal problems encountered in the course of the activity and their interactional effects (e.g. temporal constraints, omissions, additions, overlaps). In this sense, thanks to the analysis of the sequences, we show that these difficulties are not treated in the same way by all the participants, and that the interpreter plays an important role; he exerts an influence on the intersubjective relation and in the coordination of exchanges.
