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 thediscursive inscription of affects in digital interactions like WhatsApp. It is part of thefield of analysis of discourses in interaction (Kerbrat-Orecchioni, 2005) by making theframework of digital discourse (Paveau, 2017) echo with the theoretical propositions ofinformation and communication sciences (Allard, 2017). If linguists have long stressedthe infinity of the linguistic marks of emotions (Kerbrat-Orecchioni 2000) or even theirheterogeneity (Plantin, 2011 ; Micheli, 2014), this postulate is even more relevant indigital ecosystems where the expression of affects is distributed throughout the digitalinterface integrating words and gestures indifferently (Jeanneret and Souchier, 1999).Following a methodological reflection on the constitution of the WhatsApp digitalcorpus, this work focuses on the semiotic and discursive resources in the expression ofemotions. The latter are materialised in new verbal forms such as the emotiwords loland mdr, understood as a sociolect of the affect. Nevertheless, in the context of digitalmessaging, the expression of emotions goes beyond the verbal to be embodied in iconicforms marked by photodiscourses, where the photographic capture is woven with theverbal to co-elaborate meaning. Based on qualitative analyses of the collectedobservables, this thesis shows how the speakers constantly renew the forms ofemotional expressions and how they deal with the digital affordances of the system, toexplore new versions in the interactional management of affects.
