Des émotimots aux photodiscours : dynamiques technodiscursives des émotions dans les interactions WhatsApp

Abstract : Starting from a dynamic and plural conception of emotions, this thesis reflects on the discursive inscription of affects in digital interactions like WhatsApp. It is part of the field of analysis of discourses in interaction (Kerbrat-Orecchioni, 2005) by making the framework of digital discourse (Paveau, 2017) echo with the theoretical propositions of information and communication sciences (Allard, 2017). If linguists have long stressed the infinity of the linguistic marks of emotions (Kerbrat-Orecchioni 2000) or even their heterogeneity (Plantin, 2011 ; Micheli, 2014), this postulate is even more relevant in digital ecosystems where the expression of affects is distributed throughout the digital interface integrating words and gestures indifferently (Jeanneret and Souchier, 1999). Following a methodological reflection on the constitution of the WhatsApp digital corpus, this work focuses on the semiotic and discursive resources in the expression of emotions. The latter are materialised in new verbal forms such as the emotiwords lol and mdr, understood as a sociolect of the affect. Nevertheless, in the context of digital messaging, the expression of emotions goes beyond the verbal to be embodied in iconic forms marked by photodiscourses, where the photographic capture is woven with the verbal to co-elaborate meaning. Based on qualitative analyses of the collected observables, this thesis shows how the speakers constantly renew the forms of emotional expressions and how they deal with the digital affordances of the system, to explore new versions in the interactional management of affects.
